THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED CRAVE Restaurant Review: This is the first Florida outpost for the Minnesota chain, and they picked a prime location just minutes from the flashy Mall at Millenia. A busy sushi bar at the back crafts sashimi (try the yellowtail jalapeño sashimi starter), nigiri and more than two dozen kinds of generous rolls that are the best items on the menu. One of our favorites is the Fire roll with shrimp tempura and spicy salmon. There are hits and misses on the diverse menu that focuses on New American creations with an Asian overlay. The non-traditional Caesar salad had a somewhat random Southwestern flavor with its warm, cumin-laced dressing; calamari was chewy and so-so. But standouts include spaghetti al fresco with tender fresh pasta with plenty of fresh tomatoes and basil, and the rib-eye steak, which comes piled with crunchy potato shoestrings and a side of tender grilled asparagus and a sprinkling of salty blue cheese. The outdoor patio has a view of the parking lot, but on a nice evening, it’s the place to sip a cocktail and order some sushi or appetizers to share.
