Sakimura's talented chefs cull the nuanced flavors of authentic Japanese cooking from fresh, seasonal ingredients at the sophisticated, family-friendly location. Sakimura’s menu features seafood, vegetable, and protein goodies ripe for the sizzling surface of a smokeless hibachi table. New menu selections, such as the ocean-floor-crossing King Crab Pancake served with a spicy cream sauce ($13), complement artistically plated signature maki such as the spring roll—a cylindrical marriage of pepper tuna and asparagus topped with tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and avocado ($16.50). Like rapidly spinning lollipops, the eatery’s exposed brown stone and glimmering sushi bar lull diners into a trance-like state of consumption.
The menus at Sakimura's two locations change regularly in order to incorporate the freshest seasonal ingredients and the chefs’ newest culinary muses. The Simsbury location is known to intermingle traditional Japanese flavors with contemporary flourishes, with specials taking forms such as foie gras with sweet miso sauce. Both locales’ sushi chefs also invent their own creative rolls, such as a deep-fried Godzilla roll and an Out of Control roll filled with shrimp tempura and topped with seared pepper tuna.
Diners seeking a hot dinner can gather around hibachi grills and watch as chefs sear their choice of shrimp, chicken, scallops, filet mignon, or any number of other gourmet ingredients. The hibachi rooms' smokeless grills and modern yet warm decor combine to create a pleasant dining experience.
