Ten Asian Bistro & Sushi Bar Restaurant Review

: Even though the adjacent club has been renovated yet again and renamed Ten Nightclub, Ten Asian Bistro is still a hip place to hang out, especially at the affordable happy hour. A neon-backlit Buddha presides over this sleek, Far Eastern-inspired spot. The setting is striking, the sushi creations elaborate and the presentation impressive, but we're left wondering if there's any substance to back up the style. The flowery Cal-Asian fare is definitely secondary to the scene. The martini menu, which features drinks like the sour patch (Pucker liqueur and Belvedere vodka with a lip-smacking sugar rim) and the raspberry lemon drop, is outdated. Yet, it's still much more interesting than the dinner menu, which offers all the usual basic Asian dishes, as well as items any sushi lover has seen a hundred times before: California rolls, seared albacore, seafood salad and so on. This bodes well for the bar scene, but not for any gourmet aspirations. Oddly enough, the local airport district business crowd hangs out here for lunch, noshing on sushi or more American favorites like teriyaki chicken or Kobe-style beef sliders.
