Chef Stephen Window, already beloved for bringing Asian-ish "tapas" to SoCal, further raised his restaurant's popularity with the unveiling of a full sushi bar in 2005. Try miso-marinated hamachi with shaved bonito or the Roppongi Roll of shrimp tempura, cucumber, avocado, spicy tuna, and black tobiko. At the main restaurant, those tapas still rule the roost: Polynesian crab stack with ginger-lime dressing; Chinese pot stickers and crispy onion rings with wasabi aïoli are perennial favorites. There are also bento boxes at lunchtime and bigger dishes at night, several of which are not remotely Asian (boneless beef short ribs with honey-mustard glaze and buttermilk mashed potatoes).
