This award-winning restaurant claims to be the birthplace of sustainable sushi restaurants in the Northeast and boasts having the world's largest vegetarian sushi menu. The 60-page menu offers distinctive sushi preparations with many American-inspired ingredients including sushi wrapped in thin layers of fried eggplant and zucchini, cornmeal, Havarti and goat cheese, potato skins, roasted garlic and artichokes as well as delightful inspirational stories written by the chef/owner. Be sure to order the popular dessert, the seven deadly sushi roll, made with banana, peanut butter, strawberries and chocolate that is deep fried and topped with two baby scoops of hand-churned rose petal ice cream. The atmosphere is as eclectic and artsy as the crowd of Yale University students and their visiting parents. Casually dressed servers show expert menu knowledge and can help you decide on one of the distinctive homemade sake infusions which include ingredients such as hand-picked pine cones, dandelion blooms and chili peppers.
