Art/S Global Tapas - Page 2

An array of intriguing small plates from around the world -- but the riff is match, not mix

Fish: several varieties are offered as "sizzling" plates, among them an excellent mahi-mahi filet ($10), dense, meaty, and juicy atop a jumble of bean sprouts, green peas, yellow zucchini, goji berries, and Meyer lemon in a garlic sauce. For unsizzling, flip the menu card and find an extensive list of nigiri, sashimi, and rolls, including spicy tuna — the "ultimate" ($7.50) — and Cancun ($9), with smoked albacore, roasted jalapeño peppers, avocado, and spicy radish. The Cancun struck me as a Californication (a quite nice one, though), while the former strongly appealed to a member of our party who'd never eaten a sushi-style dish before: an already small world growing a little smaller.

I'm not an food expert or anything but the place is really cool. Decor is really nice, obviously not well known yet but my friends and I had a good time here. Here's a video of the place, if you mention Jippidy you get a free appetizer. jippidy.com/Arts-Tapas-Sushi-Lounge/Arts_Tapas_Sushi_Lounge
