Sushi Garage Restaurant Review

: Sunny Oh (Nobu, Juvia) and restaurateurs Jonas and Alexandra Millan are behind Sushi Garage in foodie hub Sunset Harbour. In what was once an auto body and paint shop are now fish sculptures dangling from the ceiling, handcrafted tiles dressing the floor, and fresh ginger and herbs sprouting throughout the restaurant. As for the menu, chef Oh delivers innovative takes on traditional Japanese fare, though more often than not concept succeeds execution. Stick to appetizers and noodles/rice, which is where Sushi Garage excels. Items like the kampachi yuzu-cilantro salt tiradito; watercress hop salad with hearts of palm and wasabi honey dressing; Wagyu crowned hot pot rice; and king crab tempura will keep you coming back. While sushi rolls like the tuna chicharron and unagi white pepper rosemary aïoli jump off the menu, the flavors fall somewhat flat. Better to go for specialty nigiri (like truffle shiitake) or the archetypal sushi and sashimi. Entrées feature the usual suspects of miso sea bass (but with maple) and sliced tenderloin teriyaki. Wash it all down with balanced cocktails spiked with jasmine, lychee, yuzu and other Japanese ingredients. The evening ends on a sweet note thanks to a matcha shortcake of sorts with yuzu sorbet, courtesy of pastry chef Gregory Gourreau.
