With an eclectic eye developed over years of national competition, Chef Choo of Afin Modern Japanese Tapas weaves a rich tapestry of Japanese fare with contemporary flair. Staples such as the velvety anago, grilled whole with honey, fresh ginger, and an onion salsa ($19), appear on the entrée menu alongside miso gravlax ($20), a Scottish salmon marinated in miso and sake for 24 hours, the exact time it takes to travel from Scotland to Japan by snowshoe. The sushi menu features intricately constructed à la carte nigiri including the zesty pistachio'd salmon belly ($3.50) and dozens of tightly-wound rolls ($5.50–$16) such as the special Kryptonite roll ($15), which snuggles three types of tuna with avocado, shrimp, and wasabi tobiko.
For lunch, try one of Afin’s bento boxes, which harbor spicy korean barbecue pork ($11.50) or chicken teriyaki tinted with lemon and yuzu ($10.50), all accompanied by a California roll and the appetizer of the day.
