Ronin Asian Bistro and Sushi Bar
It took Benson Yu a dozen years working in sushi restaurants before he finally struck out on his own and, when he did, his restaurant—Ronin Asian Bistro and Sushi Bar—reflected this bold leap. "Ronin" means "maverick samurai" in Japanese, and Yu has used his trail-blazing ways and years of expertise to personally engineer more than 40 speciality maki rolls, including the Lollipop roll: yellowtail, salmon, crab, and avocado, wrapped in thin cucumber. As the owner and head chef, he curates the massive menu of both sushi and Asian-fusion cuisine, featuring classics such as general-tso's chicken, and original compositions, such as tropical fried rice tossed with spicy curry. Inside the dining room at Ronin—which spans over 1,800 square feet—diners sip on hot and cold sake and imported beer while practicing their chopstick skills on Yu's creations.
