Maiko Sushi Restaurant Review

: The dining room at this sushi eatery boasts a décor that transports patrons on a gastronomic journey to the heart of Japan. Goblets for water and linen napkins and chopsticks meld European and Asian aesthetics, while menus offer a wide selection of sushi and sashimi as well as tempura and grilled dishes, such as rack of lamb misted with the savory house sauce. This is not a destination for purists, thanks to a fusion sushi menu --- check out the chef's Sambuca scallop sushi and foie gras maki --- but those looking for a purer Japanese meal would be wise to sit at the sushi bar and ask for the best of the day's catch. Carefully prepared rice is key to the successful rolls and this place has high standards. On very busy days, which are not rare, service can be a tad slow, but waitstaff is friendly and accommodating. It is worth the wait, not only for the food but for the beauty of the plating inspired by the principles of Zen, interpreted to please the eye as well as the palate.
