Moshi Moshi Sushi
In Japanese restaurants, the eye is typically drawn to the sushi bar, where chefs deftly slice and serve various seafood delicacies. At Moshi Moshi Sushi, however, the eye can't help but look above the bar—that's where hundreds of pink lights emulate cherry blossoms on an electronic sakura tree. The indisputable centerpiece of the restaurant bespeaks a devotion to mirroring Japan as much as possible. That devotion means Japanese beer on tap, sake sampler flights, and fish flown in from Tokyo's Tsukji Market, rather than delivered in the dead of night by a pickup truck from the aquarium.
The menu presents nigiri, sashimi, and specialty maki rolls. For example, the golden garden roll covers spicy tuna and tempura scallions with mango and scallops, whereas a signature piece of nigiri tops rice with seared salmon belly, yuzu juice, and grated daikon. But not everything is strictly sushi—there are appetizers such as octopus-filled flour dumplings, and grilled helpings of beef short ribs in housemade teriyaki sauce. In the lounge, original cocktails range from a lychee-rosemary cosmo to a Japanese margarita made with shishito-infused tequila.
