Utensils swan dive into a serving of clear soup and green salad, before an entourage of veggies and fried rice break dance behind hibachi-grilled meats, such as shrimp ($19), new york strip ($18), and mahi-mahi ($18). Chefs churn out sushi rolls ($7.95 for two) during lunchtime hours, including spicy crab jalapeño and vegetable tempura, and Japanese lunch boxes ($9–$10) pack in california rolls, fried dumplings, and ghosts of juice box past.
