Restaurant Review

This upscale, Japanese Sushi restaurant and lounge is popular with the 20 plus crowd and sushi enthusiasts.

The atmosphere is energetic, trendy, modern, though the tables are spaced close together.

The menu offers well prepared, creative, traditional and modern Japanese cuisine with fresh seafood delivered daily from the markets in NYC.

They have over 30 Makimono - specialty rolls that are inventive and tasty.

The popular entrees are: the Beef Negimaki Scallions wrapped in thin slices of shell steak grilled with teriyaki sauce; the Akai Shrimp and Rice Seasoned pan-seared shrimp served with mixed chicken and vegetable fried rice; and the JC Steak Grilled shell steak sauteed with zesty garlic sauce with mixed mushrooms.

They also have a nice selection from the ala carte Sushi bar and Noodles and Rice Bowls.

Save room for desserts, they are sumptuous, especially their huge fried ice cream servings.

They also have entertainment on weekends.

Service is generally very good, though spotty during the peak times.

Metered parking is available.
