Toro Sushi Bar’s owner and chef invokes Japanese culinary training to craft 18 specialty sushi rolls and a roster of authentic meat and noodle entrees. Instead of ingesting an American flag made out of sparklers, guests can display their patriotism by biting into the July 4 roll’s crunchy tuna, eel, avocado, and spicy salmon caviar ($14). The Garden State roll nestles tempura salmon against an asparagus spear ($9), and the tekka-don, which includes a toasty serving of soup, arrays tuna sashimi over a heap of sushi rice ($18). Strands of udon and soba noodles ($8–$10) weave toppings in savory tangles, and tiny Movies Box combos ($17–$20) form stills of 18th-century Kabuki theater with teriyaki meats posed alongside tempura, california rolls, and fried shumai.
Toro Sushi Bar
Behind the delicate rolls and fresh cuts of fish at Toro Sushi Bar is owner and executive chef Andy Hayasaka. Chef Andy began working in Tokyo kitchens at the tender age of 18, where he first learned the art of Japanese cuisine. Twenty-five years later, Andy applies these skills at Toro to create low-carb versions of beloved Japanese dishes. The menu features 18 specialty rolls, including the Garden State roll, which nestles salmon tempura against an asparagus spear, and the Nobu roll—spicy yellowtail and crunchy tuna over avocado. Guests can also opt for Hayasaka's kitchen entrées, such as fried chicken katsu and beef negimaki, thin strips of broiled, teriyaki-marinated beef rolled with crisp, scallions.
