Chef-crafted house rolls include the unagi with spicy tuna ($9.95) and the seared albacore in garlic-mayo sauce ($9.95), brimming with fish fresh enough to satisfy the most discerning of dolphin food critics. Diners ring three of five alarms for a medium-spicy Kamon chicken curry ($12.95), or lay out a blueprint for lunchtime with a bento box boasting sides such as a california roll and gyoza or a fried spring roll with a breaded potato cake ($7.95–$9.95). Every weekend from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., the restaurant’s lively bar serves up a menu of $5 palate-pleasers, giving purpose to dollar bills passed over for their larger-denomination counterparts.
