THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sake Lounge Restaurant Review

: Grab a quick bite or stay for a leisurely meal at this hip and lofty glass-enclosed café. Sushi fans won't be disappointed with fresh tekka don, chirashi and maki presentations made of tuna and salmon, as well as the California roll---not to mention tuna, salmon, octopus and white fish sashimi. Soup favorites include the spicy shrimp-coconut bisque with avocado-crab salsa; and the hot-and-sour soup, spiked with lemongrass, lime, shrimp and mushrooms. Entrées of note are the sesame chicken breast, stir-fried with chuka soba noodles and vegetables; the pan-seared duck breast in a plum wine demi-glace; and the charred Atlantic salmon with wasabi mashed potatoes and a spicy tobiko sauce. Or try the excellent shrimp tempura dishes, such as the combo with Osaka crab cakes, served with sautéed zucchini and a vegetable slaw with soy-garlic sauce.
