- In Short
Just beyond neon-chartreuse glass doors, Chef Morimoto's elongated culinary theater welcomes diners with undulating bamboo ceilings, color-changing booths and the Iron Chef, himself, presiding over a sushi bar in back. Morimoto transforms the simplest sushi, serving eel lightly sweet, salmon subtly buttery, soft-shell crab perfectly crisped. But the specialty here is Japanese fusion: tempura with Gorgonzola sauce and wasabi in green-tea mousse cake. Indulge in a barely grilled whole lobster salad or toro sashimi.
