About this Business
From Our Editors
Glistening crabmeat, avocado, and cream cheese lay atop a bed of rice in an artful, rectangular array, like an edible piece of abstract art. With swift hand gestures, the sushi chef lifts one side of the rectangle and begins to roll it up, transforming it into a cylinder that shows no immediate evidence that fresh fish and vegetables are hidden inside. Sushi chefs perform this and even more intricate sushi rolling techniques all day at Susaki, coming up with fantastical presentations and pet names for their specialty rolls. Back in the kitchen, the rest of the culinary team grills steaks and seafood with teriyaki sauces and spices, letting their scents waft into the contemporary dining room to announce their arrival. Among angular walls and black leather banquettes, DJs spin tunes each weekend, filling the space with high-energy beats while diners recline in the low-lit lounge amid flat-screen TVs and enjoy custom drinks from the full bar.
