My wife and I went here with our daughter and a friend of hers. It is in a beautiful area near Lincoln Park in Tremont. My daughter said it is a fusion of Japanese and American cuisine. It was a Saturday night and very busy. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. We got immediate attention from the wait staff. Our server was named Richard and was very knowledgeable. He said they pride themselves on their fish offerings. There are standard salads and entrees as well as a large number of sushi offerings. The menu was great but a little overwhelming so he gave us a tour of the menu and made some suggestions. They have a very nice smoked salmon appetizer that is served with a sour cream topping with minced onions and capers. What makes it a little different from other smoked salmon appetizers is a potato pancake. It is thin, crisp and served in quartered wedges. There is a small amount of beurre blanc sauce with this. The crispness of the pancake offset the softness of the fish very nicely. The flavors were all very subtle and merged perfectly. For the entree I had a spicy scallop roll. This was delicious as well. It comes in 4 large pieces and was enough to fill me up. My wife had the seared salmon. This had a nice crust on the top and was cooked perfectly. My daughter had the Ahi tuna, seared with a raw center. I had a piece and it melted in my mouth like butter. Her friend had the Udong noodles which were also very good. We all shared a mixed berry tart with vanilla custard which was delicious as well. The restaurant has wood floors and is noisy but in a fun and lively way. We were there two hours and Richard left us alone to talk but was always there when we needed him. All in all a very fun experience. Not a place for young children.
