The distance between Beijing, China and Tokyo, Japan is roughly 1,300 miles. So, the chances of tasting both regions' cuisines in the same day are slim–unless you're at Sato II in Stoneham, Massachusetts. There, chefs split the menu right down the middle to create a fusion of authentic flavors. The Chinese side of the menu features a section called "Interesting Pan-Fried Dishes," which includes Szechuan spicy beef sautéed with veggies and peanuts in a spicy brown sauce. Sushi specialties anchor the Japan spread, and each is accompanied by miso soup to enjoy or bring home to re-fill a depleted fish bowl. Amid all the exploration of Asian cuisines, dark wood furniture and warm lighting sets a relaxed tone that becomes especially laid-back with live Jazz music on Thursday nights.
