Miso Gumbo @ Sushi Brothers
One of the most creative Japanese restaurants hereabout, Sushi Brothers’ most interesting concoction is this hybrid of the familiar tofu-riddled pre-sushi soup with seafood gumbo. The broth includes shrimp, fish, green onions, okra, and the crowning touch of half of a small fried soft-shell crab.More than just a gimmick, this is genuinely tasty, a fine beginning to a dinner, and at seven bucks a good deal. Also here is a peppery, Cajun-style miso soup, involving salmon, shrimp, crawfish, napa cabbage, white and green onions.
