110 Japan

After a year of construction and design, the long awaited 110 Japan, located across from the Walt Whitman Mall in Huntington Station is open for business. I can’t think of any one restaurant that equals the size and depth of this state of the art Asian eatery. As you enter the premises, you will be impressed with a welcoming bar, where patrons recover from a hard days’ work, with one of their unique and exotic cocktails. Spacious table seating in their massive U-shaped booths at their lounge makes group gatherings perfect. An expansive sushi bar, Hibachi Grill room and casual dining area round out the options available at this upscale and contemporary restaurant.
    Masterful chefs carefully created a menu that is both unique in preparation and presentation. Selections are vast, but well organized, keeping you free of indecision. The “Crispy Calamari” app, is good, but what makes it amazing, is the accompaniment of Thai chili dressing with mango, giving you the sweet with a balance of heat. Here is something you won’t find anywhere else! The Miyazaki Short Ribs” are crazy good. Beef short ribs braised for 24, “fall of the bone” hours served in a savory Korean sauce. 
    For my main, I immediately get drawn to the signature rolls. “Amazing Tuna Roll”, prepared with spicy tuna, avocado, lightly seared black sesame seed tuna sashimi outside, dressed with an avocado aioli kimochi sauce. No need for soy sauce. Dipping in the aioli is flavorful and doesn’t mask the flavor of the fresh fish. What blew me away was the “Mafia Roll”. Wrapped in black rice with lobster tempura inside, topped with wasabi lobster salad and seared pepper tuna with eel sauce and spicy mayo. Never had black rice before. From what I am told, its a healthier kind of rice that contains antioxidants, which makes this an even healthier choice.
    Though completely full, I could not help but to be intrigued by the “Seafood Trio”. An array of grilled shrimp, scallops and lobster, browned and then dropped into a savory boil of sake, creamy white wine sauce, basil, bell pepper and seasonal vegetables. Accompanied by a cup of brown rice to soak up the savory mix makes this a home run. As I kept racing through the menu, my stomach said no, but my mind kept screaming for more! The indulgence went on.
    Under Fusion Hot Tastings, you’ll find the soon to be famous “Ultimate Lobster Maki”. Deep fried lobster crab meat, served with lemon and butter sauce and mango salsa. OMG. Never had anything like this. It’s a “Gotta Try It” appetizer.
    Hip, cool, revolutionary and cutting edge are the words that best describes this new absolute “go to” place for an incredible dining experience.
    P.S. Skip the soy sauce and ask for an extra helping of that Thai Chili sauce I mentioned. Dip your signature rolls into this stuff and you’ll know what I mean.

From author Meg Mitchell Moore comes a warm, witty and suspenseful novel filled with small-town secrets, summer romance, big time lies and spiked seltzer.
