THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Maikobe Restaurant Review

: In a stylish Japanese restaurant with colorful art punching up an understated black, grey and white palette, guests recline on banquettes with colorful silk throw pillows or around teppanyaki tables in a separate room. Some very respectable, artfully presented sushi is available, as well as more innovative dishes like a jalapeño-spiked tuna or salmon sashimi “pizza” drizzled with spicy aïoli and eel sauce. The flatbread crust is remarkably similar to a tortilla---puff pastry would have yielded a more sophisticated dish---but the results are satisfying nonetheless. Other contemporary creations include sashimi in truffle oil, “monkey brain” (a flash-fried hollowed out avocado stuffed with crab and tuna), and pan-seared scallops with wasabi cream. Around the teppanyaki tables, affable chefs prepare everything from red snapper to Kobe beef on a sizzling griddle. Desserts range from traditional mochi ice cream to elegantly presented green tea or black sesame crème brûlées.
