THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cherry Restaurant Review

: In the subterranean space in Dream Downtown hotel that once housed short-lived molecular gastronomy restaurant Romero comes something a bit more straightforward: sushi rolls and other Japanese-inspired fare offered in stylish surroundings. Foie gras short rib gyoza is a satisfying take on the Japanese dumpling, while the uni poached egg, wading in a shallow pool of frothy soy, is a more subtle and complex taste sensation. Tender steak au poivre, served with Japanese sweet potatoes, will appeal to the carnivore, while those seeking a sea-worthy dish might consider a barbecued eel roll, inventively topped with candied bacon, and a yellowtail jalapeño roll with kimchi miso. Numerous bottled sakés are available, as are several wines by the glass.
