Opened in 2006 to high anticipation and expectations, this upscale restaurant has gained a loyal following and a slew of accolades to go along with it ever since. The owner, who also happens to be the executive chef, has worked all over the world and has crafted some of the area's best Asian dishes. The must-try pad thai is rumored to be out of this world. Japanese favorites, an expansive sushi menu, rack of lamb, Long Island duck and Chilean sea bass are some other heralded highlights. The sushi chefs have created some distinctive rolls, including the ocean blue and mama roll which are presented in such an artistic fashion that you won't know whether to eat it or take a picture. A hip and vibrant ambience presides with five essential elements making up the décor—metal, earth, fire, wood and water. Dark woods, red hues, bamboo, snowflake-shaped light fixtures and river rock lend themselves to the upscale aura.
