KANPAI Japanese Sushi Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: KANPAI Japanese Sushi Bar & Grill is a popular Westchester neighborhood restaurant that stays open until 1 a.m. every night. Sit at the bar and observe the action or at one of the tables that pack the simple dining room. The comprehensive menu goes well beyond traditional sushi and sashimi with an array of appetizers, seafood and late-night ramen (available after 10 p.m.). Dishes range from specialty rolls like the "Tropical Roll" with spicy tuna, papaya, avocado and cucumber to fusion-inspired creations like a "Sushi Pizza" with baked crab, scallops, shrimp and salmon over sushi rice and seaweed. Additionally, there are daily specials inspired by market finds. There might be wild aka yagara (red cornetfish from Japan) or sardines, served as sushi or in a light tempura presentation. Dramatic desserts range from chocolate lava cake to exotic bomba, banana brûlée and green tea cheesecake. Be sure to browse the selection of saké and rare specialty beers. KANPAI has good ambience, with fine service from knowledgeable staff. Without a reservation, you might encounter a long wait on weekends.
