Dining room at THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sushi Samba, New York, NY

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sushi Samba Restaurant Review

: It takes two to tango, but it takes three to samba at Sushi Samba: Japan, Peru and Brazil. Enter through the colorful geometric doorway into the fanciful modern dining room where white light fixtures undulate like soap bubbles overhead. True to the cultural combination, lines are simple, but colors are bright. This mélange of cuisines and aesthetic styles produces a party atmosphere that will likely have you dancing by the end of the night. The fare, if not exceptional, is certainly loads of fun for those who aim to be entertained by their food. Start with flash-fried Japanese river crabs or otsumami (an assortment of edamame, green bean tempura and shishito), then move on to small plates like the Maine lobster taquitos with palmito and jalapeño shallot dressing. First-rate main dishes include miso-marinated Chilean sea bass or chicken teriyaki, Samba style: organic chicken, aji amarillo, purple potato mash and crispy onions.
