Sushi Zone’s chefs slice and dice fresh seafood, steaks, and sushi in traditional Japanese style. Diners can introduce taste buds to more than 10 signature rolls, such as the Mudbug roll, a toothsome combo of soft-shell crawfish and spicy mayo, or the Italian Overture roll, a hunger-busting hodgepodge of tempura calamari, prosciutto, and sun-dried tomato that echoes within mouth cathedrals like a uvula-sized didgeridoo. A supporting cast of other tasty rolls takes over the menu with star players including the Texas Ranger roll, a cylindrical savory brimming with crab meat, fresh mango, and smelt egg. Duos can round out authentic Japanese sushi dinners with the crisp greens of a house or seaweed salad and sips of soda or hot tea as they marvel at the sleekness of the restaurant’s sushi bar, which juts out from the wall and offers primo views of the chefs’ knife-based theatrics and chopsticks-based walrus impressions.
Amid hanging parasols and Japanese art, Sushi Zone chef and owner Koji Aoki crafts classic sushi that's earned praise from the press for more than 10 years. Fort Worth Weekly commended signature rolls whose ingredients "make yummy sense" rather than trying for "flashy experiments." Chefs wrap these behind the glossy black sushi bar, where guests' chopsticks also nab just-sliced sashimi and hot appetizers such as baked green mussels.
