The sushi artisans manning Fuji Ya’s kitchen slice, dice, and hand-roll more than 50 varieties of specialty sushi from a sprawling menu that earned it the restaurant a City Pages Best of 2010 award. Shed shoes and slide open the bamboo doors of a private zashiki room, where diners can slurp up bowls of shitake-infused sumashi soup ($2.50) or sample harumaki ($6.75)—Japanese-style egg rolls flanked by a side of spicy-mustard sauce. Those chowing down under the golden light of hanging lamps in the spacious dining room or attempting to chew through the red-hued sushi bar can tackle towering sushi stacks such as the eight-piece New York roll ($15.95), which mimics the intimidating tuna exterior and soft avocado center of every New Yorker. The Dynamite roll’s ($7.25) bursts of yellowtail flavor and explosions of chili pepper suit adventurous tongues, and a selection of 22 sakes and a sizable wine list ensure thirsts don’t go unquenched.
Described by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine's editors as "as close to an authentic Japanese sushi bar as we come in the Twin Cities," Fuji Ya is a destination for sushi and sake served in a "hypnotic atmosphere." At each of its two locations, chefs diligently slice freshly flown-in yellowtail and surf clam, all of which populate the extensive menu. Sidle up to the sushi bar to watch the assemblage of maki rolls and sushi platters, or gather in private zashiki rooms to dine on hot entrees of sesame-crusted tuna and roasted duck with citrus soy glaze.
