They do much more than sushi at Soma Sushi, where the menu is more of a Franco-Japanese hybrid with special emphasis on modernizing traditional dishes: see the Hokkaido-style ramen with Berkshire pork or the Akaushi short ribs served in beguilingly small bites. At the bar, though, indulge in Soma's silly side with tempura-battered chicken wings in a kicky Korean sauce or the signature Crazy Irishman roll -- with a few expertly mixed cocktails, of course.

It's probably surprising to find that a sushi restaurant excels at desserts, but you won't find anywhere else in town right now that offers the cutting-edge selections found at Soma. Using liquid nitrogen, Chef Jason Hauck has created some exhilarating and exciting dessert items like his Nitro-Bourbon ice cream, which arrives smoking at the table and then is cracked slowly with a spoon. Strange and wondrous, it's unlike anything you've ever tasted, and you may even experience smoke coming... More »
A beautifully chic restaurant filled with equally beautiful, chic people, Soma serves up some of the best and most interesting sushi in town. Located along the Washington Avenue corridor, Soma helped make the area "cool" again and inspired an ever-growing number of trendy eatery owners to set up shop there. Sure, you can get your basic California roll or spicy tuna, and it'll be delicious, but why not try something more adventurous? There's New Zealand red snapper, yellow tail belly, sea... More »
This is not your British Auntie's fish & chips. At Soma, chef Robert Gadsby, formerly of Noe at the Omni Hotel, offers a Japanese-inspired twist on this traditional dish, serving up a whole fried bass, bones, skin, tail and all. The only thing not on the plate is the head, making this a far cry from the conventional battered fillet offered at most restaurants. Served over a bed of greens with shishito peppers on the side, the fish's skin is crispy, and the inside is moist and flaky. The... More »

Served over a bed of greens with shishito peppers on the side, the fish's skin is crispy, and the inside is moist and flaky. The dish is served with four dipping sauces, including catsup, to go along with the thick steak fries that make up the "chips" portion of the meal. Enjoy the chic interior of this relatively new restaurant and have the fish and chips. It's both different and delicious.
The ambiance is soothing at this restaurant, the service is mediocre. The only problem I have with this restaurant is that the waiter made sure to go through the sushi list and brag about how they fly the freshest fish in from world famous fish market in Tokyo BUT then they served us imitation crab meat...?! Not impressed...
