We had the pleasure of dining at Zen Japanese Restaurant the other evening.

I must say Zen continues to provide a creative and tasty dining experience for the most part.  A bit pricier than other sushi restaurants on the north shore, but the superlative quality, presentation, and creativeness is well worth it.

Stick to some of their more unusual, or specialty items. We found the "standards" to be nothing special, certainly good but not outstanding.

We had, among other items, Ebi Dumplings, Jalepeno Hamachi, Warm Mushroom Salad,"Fish Tacos", Kabocha Roll,Sakura Roll, all exellent. Dessert is offered, one of the few Japanese restaurants that do, pretty basic, not their forte.To fully enjoy Zen, ask your server for suggestions, or take the menu on an adventure!

Dinner for 4, without beverages, tax or tip, $184.
