$15 for $30 Worth of Sushi and Asian Fusion for Dinner

The menu showcases classic wok dishes of kung pao chicken ($14) and moo goo gai pan ($12), as well as Asian specialties, from the seared tuna tataki ($12) to the fried pork belly served with house pickles ($10). One of 12 specialty sushi rolls, the green dragon roll tops barbecue eel and cucumber with avocado and eel sauce ($12).

Shiso Tavern

Shiso Tavern takes the concept of Asian fusion beyond the table to behind the bar. There, signature cocktails have half-familiar names: the green tea palmer, for example, which mixes green tea-infused vodka with lemonade and honey. There are lychee martinis, bottled beers, and sake samplers, all influenced by, if not imported from the east.

These libations pair well with a menu of sushi and wok-fired dishes. There are enough staples here to delight fans of classic Thai, Chinese, and Japanese cuisine, but the chefs shine when permitted to invent. The Baltimore Sun praises their soft-shell crab roll, calling it a visual "stunner" with an "exciting" medley of textures, from the tender crab to the crisp veggies and tempura. Specialty dishes range from hamachi crudo, slices of yellow tail over basil-pesto oil, topped with onion jalapeno salsa, himalayan sea salt and lemon juice, to the sushi nacho, a wonton wrapper layered with sliced tuna tataki, spicy salmon, and avocado. You can also trust the chef's judgment by ordering a plate of sashimi or nigiri, cuts of fish picked based on their freshness.

The hamachi crudo was absolutely delicious, and the beef short ribs were melt-in-the-mouth lusciousness. Will go again for Happy Hour sometime to sample some of the sushi rolls.
