Fodor's Expert Review Izumi Japanese Asian Bistro
Often the best dining experience can be had when you let the chef chose your dishes, and Izumi's chef-owner, Evan, is passionate about his culinary art and sharing it with customers. Each morning he goes to the fish market and hand-selects the best cuts for his sushi creations, including the sweet and savory Salmon-Tuna Salsa and the fresh, bright Tuna Guacamole. The torched Panda Roll—a crunchy roll with a delicious smoky flavor, as if it had been roasted over a campfire—displays a real touch of genius.
All these "off-menu" selections are offered periodically on the specials board, but just ask and Evan will be happy to make them for you.
Although predominently Japanese, the menu also offers modern takes on Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, and Singaporian classics. Try the pad thai.
