$20 for $40 Worth of Sushi, Japanese Fare, and Drinks
A multifaceted menu blends time-tested culinary traditions with a contemporary spirit in dishes such as pepper-crusted ahi sashimi and avocado ($14), the spicy crab, avocado, and grilled shrimp Chapulin roll ($12), or the Yama grilled salmon, borne upon a palanquin of asparagus and sushi rice and seasoned with a secret blend of spices ($13). Frosty Japanese beer and hot sake ($4–$6) ensure precise temperature regulation for any mouth.
At Sushi Yama, versatile chefs impart a modern flair to traditional Japanese cooking, serving satisfying noodle and katsu dishes alongside succulent sashimi plates and meticulously crafted rolls of sushi. Like a replica of a Rodin sculpture made from mochi, each meal is a blend of delicious cuisine and fine art, entrancing diners with crispy strips of tempura or crimson slivers of tuna and beef accented by colorful sliced vegetables and creamy, paper-thin crescents of avocado. A mouthwatering litany of more than 20 specialty rolls unite morsels of yellowtail, salmon, and blackened grilled shrimp with crispy panko, sweet plum essence, and zesty lime, and meals of udon and grilled salmon deliver rich notes of umami flavor. Diners garnish feasts with inventive appetizers of chili-kissed oysters and wasabi-laced fish tacos while clinking glasses of frosty beer and potent sake.
