Downtown to Azuma FANS OF AZUMA WILL BE PLEASED to learn that a second location has opened downtown. The sleek, modern Japanese restaurant has brought across its style and menu from the original Kirby location to the Rice Lofts. Azuma Sushi & Robata Bar is a good fit for this neighborhood - upscale and casual. The decor is done in sharp black and neutral tones. Intriguing touches such as ceiling light fixtures made from asymmetrical beige cloth boxes are visually stylish, yet in keeping with the overall Japanese ambience. The robata, or open flame charcoal grill, is one of the signature dining experiences at Azuma. We ordered the robata combo one ($12), which allowed us to sample beef, shrimp and calamari, grilled on skewers. And thus began our adventures in poor service. We ordered the appetizers even before our drinks, yet the kitchen served up one of our main courses before anything else arrived. The person who delivered the food was not our waitress, so it took some time to sort out of the situation. Eventually, our appetizers arrived, but they brought us combo two, which included shiitake mushroom and shrimp as well as the other three items. The robata is tasty but the various items seemed to be seasoned in the same manner, making them all a bit the same. Two dipping sauces add flavor. We all agreed the mushrooms were the best of the bunch, so in the end we were glad for the service mix up. Our favorite appetizer was the shiitake age ($6), shiitake stuffed with shrimp and calamari and tempura fined. A delicate tem- pura outside contrasted nicely with the tender shiitake and seafood inside. Even the serving was generous. Unusual and creative, it was one of the best dishes of the evening. Don't miss the Azuma hot rock beef ($14). A blazing hot rock, butter, and thinly sliced beef are placed in front of you on a stylishly arranged platter. You season the rock with the butter, then cook the beef to your liking. It's fun and decadently delicious. Like many of Azuma's dishes, however, the servings are miserly, there's no rice or other starch, and you're left wanting more. THE VOLCANO CONCH ($12) SOUNDED intriguing. Our waitress told us fake crab cake, along with the conch meat, was sauteed with vegetables. We could hardly wait to see what she meant. Although stunningly served in a large upright conch shell with a piece of fruit set aflame, the result was somewhat disappointing. The conch meat was rather tough and slices of unidentifiable seafood made it seem almost down-market. Quite The sushi at Azuma's new location is made of top- quality seafood and is stylishly presented. spicy, it too would have seemed a more complete dish if accompanied by rice. Fortunately, we had plenty of rice to spare from the una ju ($15), grilled freshwater eel on rice. The eel was outstanding, served slightly warm with a hint of smokiness. The serving of eel could have been more generous, but there was enough rice for six people. Odd serving combinations seem to be a theme. Azuma is a better deal at lunch. A special lunch menu, with a wide variety from sushi to udon to bento boxes is offered. The lunch specials are served with a salad, topped with the traditional Japanese spicy dressing. The roll combo C ($12.95) includes three hand rolls and a spider roll made with softshell crab. The seafood is top quality and very fresh, and everything is stylishly presented. Even the service seems more attentive and speedier at lunch. The dishes arrived promptly, and the waitress was quick with the check. Azuma is a stylish, dependable Japanese restaurant, and the new location is a good fit for downtown. With a built-in clientele from lofts, the busy theater district and nearby offices, it's sure to fill a niche. ^ Azuma Sushi & Robata Bar 909 Texas, Suite E 713-223-0909 www.azumajnpanese.com Food: www 1/2 Service: WWW Value: WWW Scene: WWW W n> = Stay home and eat cereal WW= Well, if you really must w W w = Fine for all but the finicky W W W W =Worth more than a 20-minute drive W W W W W =As good as you'll find in this city
