White Fish Carpaccio - white fish with a touch of olive oil, yuzu dressing, five spice seasoning and garlic chips.
Eun Kyung's nearly twelve years of sushi experience definitely shine here - the proof is in the plating. The house signature sushi is a yellowtail jalapeno carpaccio ($23) topped with thin slices of tomato, jalapeno and a special ponzu sauce. A list of "celebrity rolls," with a portion of proceeds donated to a selected charity, includes the David Backes Roll ($15) which contains a kaleidoscopic display of salmon, avocado, tuna, light tempura crunch, eel sauce, sriracha sauce, Japanese mayo and colored tobiko.
