May and Kenny Chen really spruced up the ambience at this former card shop in the Dorsey’s Search Village Center with inventive lighting and a crystal beaded curtain separating the sushi bar from the dining area. They call it Japanese fusion, offering hibachi and teriyaki dishes, sushi and sashimi, and lunchtime bento boxes. A party room is available for reservations.
