About the Restaurant:
215 Goddard Row
The Menu: Healthy eaters, here’s a Japanese place to call home. Pick from a rambling list of organic appetizers — vegan soba noodles, vegan dumplings, miso soup — plus locally sourced shellfish and fresh-as-can-be wild salmon from California.
Vibe: It feels like a takeout restaurant, which it primarily is, with sparse walls and chilly tile floors. But the sushi chef won’t scowl when you pull out a bottle or six-pack; ours was happy to bring over a couple of glasses and delivered our dinner right to the table.
Get: The popular options, including a super veggie roll with avocado, carrot, cucumber and scallions, or the spicy scallop roll, with local shellfish, cucumber and scallions, are tasty and fresh. But we took a risk and tried the Broadway, a special ten-piece jumbo roll with spicy sauce, sweet potato tempura, shrimp, avocado, cucumber, crab, scallions and spicy sauce. It’s pricy at $14.95, but the Broadway is big enough to share, though you probably won’t want to. It offers just the right amount of spicy and cool flavors, and its size — well, let’s just say we’ll never return to the puny rolls of yesteryear.
Sommelier Says: If you can get your hands on some sake and Kirin Ichiban, more power to you. But our extra dry riesling paired beautifully.
Corkage Fee: None
Closest Liquor Store: Spring Street Spirits, 137 Spring St., Newport, 846-0959

Fine Print: Just before closing time, the restaurant slashes its sushi prices in half so its chefs can start fresh the next day. Visit at 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday or at 6 p.m. on Sundays to get in on the deal.
