Oyama is a visual feast. The fully renovated interior showcases sleek lighting, tropical flowers, and gold-embroidered banquettes. Tea is served in see-through pots, and the punchy cocktails—such as Oyama’s lychee martini and pineapple cosmopolitan—are poured at the curvaceous bar. When asked, the sushi chef directed us to a gorgeous Ocean’s Trio roll: tuna, hamachi, salmon, and avocado bundled in a soy-bean paper. The sashimi here is served as thick as steaks. The hand rolls are excellent (we particularly loved a creamy cone of crispy salmon skin). Our lightning-hot tempura, a stunning arrangement of prawns and varied veggies, had a crust more springy than crispy. But they know what they’re doing; this is the owners’ second sushi spot (the original Oyama is in Lafayette). Bonus: Fresh wasabi is available upon request. Lunch and dinner daily.
