This is a relatively new restaurant from the team behind the former Sushi Wabi. It is a cool environment that I would describe as industrial chic. It’s a small space and a little bit loud, but nothing overwhelming. This was an impulse dining trip, and luckily we did not have to wait for a table (it was a Tuesday night). Given the size of the space and the Randolph Street location, I’d probably recommend making a reservation.
One of my dining companions ordered the Lychee Sorbet prior to dinner and I stole a small bite – it was absolutely fantastic – rich, creamy, and slightly tart.
I started with the Tuna Truffle; the combination of tuna, truffle and avocado provided a very flavorful taste. I love truffle and it was pretty strong, though definitely not overpowering, however this might not be a good choice if you are not a truffle oil fan.
Next, were two Maki rolls – the Dragon Roll and the Northern California Roll. The Dragon Roll is always one of my favorites, and while this version was good, the tempura shrimp was a little soggy. I have to say I’ve had better versions at other sushi restaurants in town. My dining companion picked the Northern California roll; I was a little hesitant about this one, as I’m not usually a fan of soft shell crab. I was pleasantly surprised; this had unique flavors and a great texture. It reminded me a bit of a traditional California roll, but with more unique flavors.
They have a fairly extensive Sake menu, and a nice selection of wines by the glass.
