A tapas style menu gives diners the opportunity to sample all kinds of food and explore new tastes, while also experiencing the signature Sushi Bar and the Sake, Beer and Wine Bar with Happy Hour specials and wine flights for sampling or pairing for your next visit. My favorite was the Pineapple infused Sake, it is sweet and subtle.

For dessert try Matcha Green Tea Panna Cotta. Japanese green tea panna cotta, topped with chocolate cookie and pine nut crumbles, yuzu citrus coulis. It’s super creamy and divine.
