Dinner: Sushi Zen

It’s not easy finding a restaurant with a short wait on a Saturday night in the Theatre District, but we did at Sushi Zen.  The friendly and welcoming hostesses sat us within 15 minutes.  The main dining area is comfortable with a zen-like feel to it.

We ordered appetizers from the streamlined menu:  asari clam miso soup and fresh corn tempura to start.

My friend enjoyed the soup, and I really liked the corn tempura.  I don’t order tempura, but the fresh corn sounded good.

For sushi, we got the salmon avocado roll–salmon roe, avocado and kaiware sprouts; negi toro pickles–fatty tuna, scallion and pickled daikon radish; yellowtail with scallion; and futomaki–snow crab, egg custard, gourd, spinach and pickles with bonito flakes.  We enjoyed the sushi, but we also thought it was a bit expensive.

For the price, service was also a bit slow and not as attentive as it could’ve been.
