Kai’s more-than-serviceable sushi set to make waves

The Ultimate Roll and assorted nigiri from Kai Sushi.

Rounding out the experience were absolutely delicious drinks created by Angela Yang. Kai utilizes sake in a good number of drinks, ranging from martinis to margaritas. I was apprehensive at first, but the sake made for a dangerously smooth drink compared to your typical tequila margarita and gin-based martini. The Lychee Martini, Sake-rita, and Sake Strawberry Daiquiri in particular are highly recommended.

To end the night, I had fried vanilla ice cream for dessert, which at this point was expectedly delicious. The service was excellent throughout, and the pride the chefs had in their food was clearly evident in every bite. Owner Stephen Yang told me that Kai Sushi was currently still in a “soft opening” phase, constantly refining and tweaking the menus until the scheduled grand opening in January to coincide with the Japanese New Year. By my reckoning, Kai’s offerings and considered delivery already trump many established sushi joints in town. This is one to seek out. •
