Tucked inside Hoshi Sushi Lounge, Sushi Master La Tran and staff surround themselves with yellowtail, salmon, octopus, crabmeat, and sliced veggies, all waiting to be plucked from their chilled containers and placed on tiny piles of rice or wrapped inside sheets of seaweed. The sushi rolls—with creative names such as Bulldog, Miami Heat, and Love You Long Time—arrive at tables laid out on an ivory plate like abstract artwork. The kitchen team also prepares entrees free of a seaweed sheath, including tempura, teriyaki, and stir-fried meats and veggies. The sushi haven's minimalist interior features bold-red color, framed artwork, and an exposed brick-front wall that dares passersby to huff and puff and then courteously enter through the front door.
