$20 for $40 Worth of Modern Japanese Cuisine

The menu opens with appetizers ($6–$14) such as foie gras custard and blue-fin-tuna carpaccio; entrees ($12–$24) include grilled Chilean sea bass and a rack of lamb encrusted with goat cheese. Among the sushi specials ($4.75–$12) is the Arizona roll, whose delicate crunch comes from shrimp tempura and carrot.

Japone

Before guests to Japone—or its less-formal sister eatery, Café Japone, located upstairs—even take their first bites, they notice the restaurant’s unusually colorful environment: an attached lounge area dubbed Sango Sho surrounds patrons in oceanic hues and fiber-optic luminescence, and regular DJ performances keep toes moving so that they don’t get caught by a shark. Karaoke kicks off at 9:30 p.m. every night in both Japone and Café Japone, giving guests two places to show off their pipes on a continually updated list of the latest hit English, Japanese, and Spanish-language tracks.

To keep mouths happy, Japone's French-trained chef fuses Japanese and French flavors. Entrees include curried jumbo shrimp and scallops, plated with fresh veggies, japanese mushrooms, and a dollop of rice, while sushi specialties include the Arizona roll with shrimp tempura and carrot.

Turn up the AC a bit, please

The food was wonderful, but I felt the decor and and furniture could use an upgrade or refinish. The current look makes you a bit scared to go inside and eat, because it gives you a sense of uncleanliness, but after you sit down and get your food, the presentation and taste of the food is excellent.
