When the beloved Yutaka Sushi Bistro closed, this spot moved into its location of 17 years. The decor remains largely unchanged, but Maji brings a broader menu of sushi and rolls, Japanese classics, fusion offerings, and bowls. We’re partial to the traditional sushi and sashimi, like the tuna tataki—blocks of ultra-fresh tuna, torched to give a light sear, and served with ponzu sauce. The wide selection of sushi rolls includes some rice-less ones, such as the JJ Roll—krab (imitation crab) and avocado wrapped in yellowtail and drizzled with spicy mayo. The seafood and vegetable tempura was excellent, with a crisp, delicate batter encasing large sweet prawns, small scallops, and a trio of vegetables. The Heart Attack turned out to be a fun fusion take on jalapeño poppers: a tempura-jacketed jalapeño half stuffed with cream cheese and ground beef. For a hot entrée, and something sentimental, get the rich, miso-glazed black cod—one of the few holdovers from Yutaka’s menu.
