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.

I was thrilled to discover Afin. The quality of the sushi is fantastic! Beautiful presentation of food. I am spreading the word and definitely coming back.

Don't judge this restaurant by the outside -- it's warm and inviting inside, the sushi is delicious, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

I would give it 3-4 stars. Food is good but pricey (for the locale and quantity). Try it during Happy Hour to see if you like; although service can be spotty during HH.
