We checked out the new Japanese restaurant, Douzo, last night. It is located at 131 Dartmouth Street next to Back Bay Station. The decor is just beautiful inside, the designers did an amazing job. The food is even more amazing. I am not even sure where to begin. We started with steamed shrimp shumai, it was some of the best I have had in recent months. The chef sent us an amzing app. that was a salmon, wrapped in radish, stuffed with avacado, ginger and carrot. It was so amazing we ordered more from the cold app menu.
The sashimi ultra fresh and the portions were very generous, so much so, I would have been all set with just the salmon sashimi. We also ordered the yellow tail sushi and the toro sushi (tuna belly) -outstanding. For a side we had a ramen noodle prepared with mushrooms and seaweed, delicious.
We had 2 glasses of wine each and the bill was only $90. The staff was friendly, atttentive and fun. We can not wait to go back. I highly recommend you try this gem before everyone knows about it.
