  • Sawatdee & Zushiya of Maple Grove
    Successful restaurateur Supenn Harrison made her first foray into the restaurant business more than 30 years ago, when she bought a burger joint in the Twin Cities. For Supenn, slinging patties wasn't enough to satisfy her love of the culinary arts; the Thailand native and former teacher quickly traded deep fryers for woks and opened her first Thai restaurant. She eventually launched the first Sawatdee in 1983 in an abandoned warehouse, transforming the unlikely setting into something you might see in the heart of Bangkok, with gold-leaf ceilings and traditional artwork. Now, Supenn owns seven Sawatdee restaurants throughout Minnesota and has expanded the menu to include sushi dishes. Besides sharing her culinary skills through hands-on cooking classes, Supenn has disseminated her authentic Thai fare by catering birthday celebrations, family reunions, and the Rolling Stones' anti-retirement party.

  • MT. Fuji Restaurant-Maple Grove
    Tradition informs the menus at Mt. Fuji Sushi & Hibachi, which predominantly feature Japanese staples with splashes of French influences. At the Maple Grove location, chefs occasionally leave the kitchen and man the grills that adorn select tabletops. There, they entertain their hungry audiences by searing entrees of chicken, Canadian sea scallops, and filet mignon while correctly naming every gold-medalist from the 1896 Olympics. For cuisine prepared with an equally artistic flare but fewer open flames, the sushi chefs at each location assemble orders of sashimi and maki. They pack particularly robust flavor into their special rolls by incorporating such ingredients as lobster tempura, deep-fried soft shell crab, and signature sauces.

  • Sushi of Tokyo
    Sushi of Tokyo may actually be located in Plymouth, but nobody is doubting where the restaurant finds its inspiration. Japanese chefs masterfully incorporate raw ingredients such as surf clam, smelt roe, and squid into their nigiri and sashimi. It doesn’t matter that their kitchen is conspicuously lacking in smoke and flames—not when their California rolls taste so good with crunchy cucumbers, imitation crab meat, and sides of salty Pacific Ocean water. Though much of the food is uncooked, the chefs supply ample heat with their spicy lobster salad and udon noodle soups brimming with chicken, veggies, or seafood.
