About this Business
From Our Editors
Behind Matsuya Sushi & Grill's sparkling L-shaped sushi counter, succulent fillets of tuna, salmon, and white fish succumb to chefs' keen knives before joining rice in bite-sized nigiri or tempting rolls. Collective gasps of admiration—usually reserved for the unveiling of a child’s macaroni self-portrait—leap from the lips of patrons as a chef taps and tosses shrimp, chicken, filet mignon, and lobster on the hibachi grill. Dressed in traditional Japanese robes and hats, waiters ferry plates decorated with carrot roses and artful splashes of sauce across the dining room, where screens and blond woods cultivate a peaceful atmosphere. Chefs reveal their sushi secrets every Sunday, bestowing their knowledge upon students during four-hour all-you-can-eat sushi-making classes.
