About Us

    We tried the Las Vegas Maki ($12.95), which was made with salmon, avocado, crab meat, cream cheese, masago and then deep fried. Appare's presentation is contemporary and colorful. That?s where the fusion element comes in, said the restaurant's general manager Ken Lin.

    The menu also includes sushi dinner combinations, sashimi, salads, soups and appetizers. We tried the vegetable and shrimp tempura, which was lightly fried to a soft crunch. The sushi sampler ($7.95) included one piece each of yellow tail, salmon, red snapper, tuna and fluke over an individual bed of white rice.

    We also sampled lobster, chicken, shrimp and steak from the hibachi grill, where chef Jacky Chen pulled plenty of tricks out of his apron.

    Appare has specials on martinis and sushi on Wednesday nights. I tried the Sake on the Beach made from Momokawa Diamond Sake, Chambord, Cruzan Coconut Rum and pineapple juice from the specialty drink menu. Fresh fish is supplied from outlets in New York and Chicago and is flown in three times a week.
