Dinner at the New Sushi House

Tammy Daniels

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — I had a chance to try the new Sushi House on Main Street over the weekend.

First, the interior is very sleek and contemporary with a Japanese feel. The hanging lamps were very cool; the ones over the tables were loglike, the ones over the sushi bar had lovely maple leaves on them.

The restaurant wasn't very busy but it was only 5 p.m. on a Friday night. About a half-dozen other parties came and went during our meal. We've heard it's been quite busy later in the evening.

I ordered the fried calimari and Crazy Maki, a six-piece sushi roll with fried shrimp. It was served really beautifully but I was already digging into it before I thought to take a picture.

The calimari was very good. The batter was light and not greasy at all. It was served with a side sauce I also used for dipping the sushi. OK, it wasn't technically "real" sushi, but it looked good and tasted even better. My companion tried a Korean sweet and sour soup that he said had "a little bite to it."

The special was another Korean pot dish with layer rice, vegetables and meat of choice topped with a fried egg that also looked very good. The restaurant has a full liquor license and a choice of drinks like daiquiris and martinis all for $4.95.

There is a wide variety of appetizers and both traditional and nontraditional sushi, pad thai and other items, and lunch specials. Service was swift and efficient. We were in and out in less than an hour.

We've got a menu we'll try to get up.
