Nagomi Restaurant Review

: There are no show-stopping visuals or grand displays at Nagomi; simplicity is the key. Natural wood chairs and tables softly illuminated by intimate lighting and a small sushi bar in the rear of the restaurant don't detract from the authentic Japanese fare that takes center stage. Begin with one of Nagomi's special rolls; again, there are no trendsetting twists, only preparations of classics like the rainbow roll, a colorful blend of three different kinds of thinly sliced sushi-grade fish topped with avocado and salmon roe. However, a few less common creations, like salmon skin and scallion, sweet squash, and plum and cucumber do intrigue. We also suggest the roasted black cod, a buttery tender filet marinated in miso for a fine combination of sweetness and soy. Finish with a sampling of green tea and red bean ice cream for a refreshingly light dessert that will still satisfy a sweet tooth.
