Situated a salmon roll's throw away from a nearby beach, Sushi Shoya keeps diners’ chopsticks busy with platefuls of authentic Japanese fare. Guests can settle into black leather chairs at a table or the sushi bar before sampling rice-bundled modicums of solo-flavored sushi, such as the avocado roll ($3.95 for eight) or tuna roll ($4.95 for eight). For a denser infusion of ingredients, chefs scrunch together salmon, tuna, cucumber, fish eggs, and cream cheese for the florida roll ($7.50) and use the Banzay roll to review quarterly sales with pie charts made from tuna, shrimp, and crab ($8.95). Servers haul out an array of fresh fish entrees and augment dishes with spirited beverages, including sake, beer, and wine. Foliage spills from wicker baskets lining the doorway, echoing the pale green walls that envelop the eating environment in a natural tone.
