Inazuma Sushi/Description

From Masq

Inazuma Sushi -- Main Room -- Albuquerque

 Upon entering this establishment, customers are greeted with a cheerful "Irasshaimase!" from the sushi chefs and staff, welcoming the guests to the restaurant. Seating is available at tables, or directly at the sushi bar. The sushi chefs are friendly, personable men with strong accents, who seem delighted to chat in Japanese with the occasional customer who knows the language. Well aware of the perils of seafood in a land-locked state like New Mexico, the restaurant makes a big deal of advertising how recently their fish was caught and where it came from. This obsession with freshness makes the restaurant expensive, but at least you won't get food poisoning.

 Inazuma offers more traditional sushi fare -- very few rolls here are fried and smothered in sauces, and none involve cream cheese. The menu also includes non-sushi choices such as udon, teriyaki, and tempura, with mochi ice cream for dessert.

 The restaurant is dimly lit, and the tables seem quiet and private. The decor is all modern, brushed steel and dark wood with an Asian aesthetic. A large waterfall fountain and koi pond fills one corner, the shallow pool filled with large, bright, colorful fish. Every table has a small decoration: paper folded into origami cranes, boats, and flowers. Unobtrusive waitresses in dark, modest uniforms scurry about, bringing food and beverages to the tables. Overall the place has a peaceful feel, a perfect haven in which to enjoy fine food and escape the world.
