    Sharaku Sushidokoro
    Sharaku is the most authentic Japanese restaurant in metro Detroit, offering 25 daily-changing appetizers, including catches of the day, and a relatively short list of entrées. As in Japan, the decor is spare, blond wood, and meals are served with a minimum of pretension — just artful arrangements of the food and garnishes themselves. For sushi, you may want to branch out and try rolls of dried squash, burdock, ume shiso (green tea), natto (fermented soybeans) or orange clams.The chef’s choice “sushi deluxe” will come with 10 lovely nigiri pieces plus a roll, also with crunchy pickles of radish turned bright yellow and cucumber now purple, and a delicious opaque broth with the most delicate of scallions, still crisp. At the back of your menu, look for a long list of liquors (shochu) distilled from different grains: sweet potatoes, barley, rice, buckwheat or potatoes (the most popular). Takeout available for sushi only; party platters also available (minimum $25 order).
    Shiro is a study in elegant contrasts, featuring a fresh fusion menu highlighting the best of European and Asian cuisines. Its intimate dining rooms were once the living quarters of a 1920s Greek Revival mansion. White linen, dark paneling, ornate cove moldings and fireplaces provide a classic setting for the adventurous menu. The list of entrees emphasizes seafood, but also includes roasted rack of lamb and filet mignon. Chef Tobin Harris says his favorite dish is probably the sesame-crusted ahi, for its contrasts in color, texture and flavor. The rare tuna filet is coated with black and white seeds and served with a pale green wasabi cream sauce, which Harris believes is unique to his restaurant. The restaurant’s lower level features a complete sushi bar, and Shiro offers a full Japanese lunch menu.
