Ozoku Sushi & Sashimi Bar

The Royalton Hotel has a sushi and sashimi bar up front in the lobby called Ozoku. My wife grabbed a great flash deal for the omakase for two people.

First off, this was a great hickory smoked old fashioned:

Okay so the food. The first course was the veggies. Soy beans and sesame-kimchi brussels sprouts.

Next up was a pair of sashimi plates. One was tuna with pickled beets, and the other was hamachi.

Nigiri was next. A fatty salmon and some more hamachi.

Then a bowl of soup, which was really awkward to share among two people, but we managed. This was a coconut curry broth with mussels and fingerling potatoes.

Just when we thought the meal might be over, we got two more plates of sushi rolls. One was tuna, the other was scallop and shrimp.

And then, finally, after we were pretty much stuffed, we received this plate of smoked porgie.

Not a bad spread of food! However, the lounge area where you eat is a bit awkward because you have to lean down to the table the entire time, and your back will start to ache. Since the hotel is super sexy and chic, the set up is more like a lounge than a restaurant.
