About this Business
From Our Editors
Chefs at Sato's Zen Sushi & Sake strive to create entertaining cuisine. Their 26 varieties of specialty maki rolls—filled with ingredients such as fried soft crab, barbecue eel, and spicy salmon—bear whimsical names, such as Pink Floyd or the Flying Sea Monster. Covered in blazing Devil's Blood Sauce, the 6 Feet Under roll adds an element of competition to meals; patrons who successfully consume the extra-hot concoction get their roll for free.
Sato's chefs also surprise palates with fusion-style dishes such as the Jalapeño O-toro, which pairs sliced, fresh tuna belly with jalapeño and cilantro. The two-person zen fondue melds tempura-fried seafood and gooey melted cheese, hearkening back to the days when Japan and Sweden were connected by a naturally occurring cruise-line buffet. Myriad styles of sake, including peach and plum, accent the food.
