Haru Sushi, Boston

The very model of the modern urban sushi restaurant, Haru Sushi, the Boston outpost of the New York City- based chain, manages to craft both quality sushi standards and interesting designer rolls.

The lobster mango ceviche ($16) appetizer is an elegant presentation and a novel way to try one of New England’s favorite local ingredients. Haru Sushi also an excellent variety of traditional sushi with melt-in-your -mouth maki and tender, just-right thick slices of  sashimi. Sushi entree combination plates run from$22-$26 and portions are extremely generous for high-end Japanese cuisine.  If you want to go fancy, opt for the Dragon roll ($17) of eel and avocado wrapped around crab and cucumber. Or if you dare, try the Kiss of Fire roll ($16) with white tuna, salmon and jalapeno peppers wrapped around spicy tuna.

The interior hits the mark. Haru Sushi is trendy sleek with dark bamboo floors, well-spaced tables, and a huge (and busy) sushi bar.  The wait staff is willing to please and knowledgeable. Sushi newbies are welcome but if you are a pisciphobe cooked foods are also available too-with several teriyakis, tempuras, and grilled Asian fusion style dishes. For those who want to experience big-city sushi without paying mega-prices, Haru Sushi has good value bento boxes at both lunch and dinner.  And tasty cocktails and appetizer specials cater to the hip, after-work crowd.
