One of the more handsome Japanese restaurants in the area, Serika doesn’t disappoint once your dishes start arriving. Miso soup is particularly rich, with plenty of crunchy chopped scallion and bits of fried tempura. The red tuna sushi, even in the bento boxes, is fresh, pure, and smoothly textured, and the yellowtail is even more delicate. The sukiyaki is a stunning still life of vegetables and beef in a sweet elixir of broth. The fry of the tempura is light both in color and in weight. Our salad had a nice tangle of crisp lettuces, carrot, and purple cabbage, but was waterlogged. Two pristine balls of green tea ice cream had a great slightly powdery texture. Service is efficient. Lunch Mon.–Fri., dinner Mon.–Sat.
