had wanted to go here a long time, since reading about it on CH last yr. very interesting menu of non-traditional japanese sushi-oriented things. tiny tiny place. we made rserva. for 5:30, to get to a CC movie on time, and all worked out well.waitress v. helpful/friendly/asian american.

the non-sushi eater was very happy with the fusion tuna ball,and the yuzu miso chilean sea bass. handsome composed Spicy Tuna Salad with interesting textural components of tobiko and tempura crumbs.the tofu mushroom salad had a very interesting texture of firm but creamy tofu, skimpy shiitakes, delicious yuzu-type vinaigrette on the bed of greens. (i asked for more of this and used it on a number of things instead of the sweet glaze/sauces the chef/owner seems to favor.)
my hamachi and sake nigiri were fresh and flavorful but i personally do not like this version of nigiri- 6" pieces of fish with a tiny ball of rice underneath.
not only difficult to eat, but- if i wanted this ratio of fish to rice, i would have ordered sashimi. i find the addition of crunchy tempura items- like soft shell crab, or sweet potato, an interesting and flavorful take on maki and the owner does a lot of this on his menu. the spider maki was my fav. item of the meal. the more unusual dragon maki- huge/wide diameter maki-with tempura sweet potato, unagi and avoc.- was v. good but still a bit sweet even without the sweet unagi teryaki glaze that i asked them to withhold.(this dish is better with a little lemon i think, and that yuzu vinaigrette came in handy here). i do wish there were more restuarants in boston with fusion/
adventurous combos. go to Super Fusion and have some delicious fun.
