Zakuro Japanese Bistro & Sushi Bar
The chefs at Zakuro Japanese Bistro & Sushi Bar travel back and forth through culinary epochs as they forge a menu that blends traditional Japanese dishes, such as sukiyaki and sashimi, with the modern flourishes of more than 40 specialty maki rolls accented by 20 homespun sauces. With an eye for both aesthetic beauty and flavorful depth, these maki rolls like to surprise the taste buds with distinctive additions such as thinly sliced lemon, fried lobster, or garlic sauce. Along with past and present, Zakuro's chefs explore the cuisine's future with spicy Zakuro spaghetti and other fusion dishes.
As diners expand their palates, they can refresh them between bites with paired selections of crisp and robust sakes. Dim light ties together the rich-burgundy walls and the chocolaty leather of the chairs and booths, enhancing the romance of the dark-wood sushi bar and preventing anyone from trying to stage a shadow-puppet opera.
