Opus is a sparkling recent addition to the Salem dining scene. We visited it for the first time this evening. We had perused the online menu beforehand. The selection looked huge, but it was helpful for us to have an advanced peek at the offerings. I selected a generous order of dragon roll sushi, minus the spicy mayo. It had a savory crunch to it with its perfectly cooked tempura shrimp, plus avocado, crab, freshwater eel, eel sauce and pickled ginger. Along with it: a glass of excellent sauvignon blanc. My spouse loved the North Shore Picnic--with perfectly fried haddock (no heavy, greasy flavor), bacon potato salad, warm radishes and other trimmings. A very generous helping. For dessert, we split a mason jar filled with chocolate mousse mixed with pieces of rich chocolate cake. Thanks to Ben, our server, for his attentive service. Well worth a return visit, we think!
