Douzo Restaurant Review:

Douzo, which translates to “please come in,” offers a sleek interior of cool hues and geometric design. The menu has all the standards but emphasizes eclectic options such as duck tataki, eel-and-coconut sushi and salmon-kiwi rolls. Start with Kobe beef tartare, tuna tataki, monkfish pâté or the signature spare ribs. We like pairing a saké flight with a Back Bay roll of asparagus, cucumber, avocado and seared tuna. Main dishes include black cod misoyaki, sirloin with black pepper sauce and grilled salmon with teriyaki. Although the place is spacious, with plenty of comfortable booths, we still prefer to sit at the sushi bar and ask the chefs for their recommendations; when they say "toro," get the toro. Service can be harried at times and the price tag is steep, but the sushi is well worth it.
