The epicurean alchemists at Two Fish Bistro glut their menu with fresh, wild-caught seafood styled in contemporary, bistro-inspired dishes. Diners slice into ribbons of ginger-garlic eel draped over seaweed-wrapped sticky rice ($16) or spoon up the Two Fish curry stew’s crab and calamari while munching on toast points ($19). The sleek, modern dining room’s gray suede chairs and large-bellied vases watch as lips pucker to kiss blackened ginger trout splashed with lemon ($16).
The land-bound short ribs bravely grip asparagus lances for an all-out joust against three-cheese mashed potatoes ($18) under the glow of pendant lights, and walnut-encrusted tuna lounges under a maple butter reduction ($19). Glasses of freshly squeezed juices wash down diver scallops that snorkel through sweet corn and asparagus risotto in search of pesto-coated treasure chests ($19).
At Shoku, morsels of succulent beef, marinated chicken, and ocean-fresh seafood fill out feasts of Japanese noodles and sushi or dishes inspired by national favorites of Asian nations including Korea, China, and Thailand. Broth-soaked udon noodles jostle for attention with plates of pad thai, pan-fried pot stickers, and bowls of sizzling beef bulgogi. Guests take a seat inside to watch a master chef deftly carve seafood at the sushi table, or they can lounge under umbrellas at the outdoor seating to watch the passing foot traffic and hourly soapbox derbies along Grandview Avenue.
