Shiro is a comfortable and stylish sushi joint where people mingle and conversation is heard throughout, table to table. There is a large window which gives the place an open feel and overlooks the Beacon cinema across the street.
We saw Leonard and Dan at the bar and met a nice woman who was there for take-out. We also chatted with the couple at the table next to us about Ireland and movies for no reason in particular.
Our waitress was also very friendly. May-be it was the sake, but we were having a good time.
We began with a salad and miso soup which were both top notch. We liked the carrot ginger dressing and the soup was soothing.
Then it was time to Rock and Roll. Anne had her usual avocado roll and Steve had his favorite, eel and cucumber roll. We both shared the Ozawa roll which was delicious and consisted of benito, scallions and avocado. We were satisfied and a bit sauced, but we continued on to the next course.
Steve had the Beef Negimaki, thinly sliced beef wrapped with scallions in Teriyaki sauce and it measured up to his expectations.
Anne had the chicken yakitori grilled with peppers on a skewer with wasabi mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. We throroughly enjoyed and finished our dishes.
The vibe here is super friendly. We had a great time
