~ Back Bay, Boston, MA ~
Douzo Sushi is a modern Japanese restaurant located in the Back Bay on 131 Dartmouth Street, right next to the T stop. I went to Douzo on a Monday night and it was packed, which proves how good the sushi is! Douzo also has 4 stars on Yelp! We had a dinner reservation for 4 and we were seated right away. The staff is very attentive and friendly and they have a coat check which is convenient. The atmosphere is modern and trendy with a lot of energy! Douzo is great for both a group of friends or for a date. The sushi hand rolls range from $4-$9 and the specialty rolls range from $9 – $17. The quality of the food and the great service makes the menu prices worth it. We had a great time and there were no complaints. I highly recommend this restaurant and would go back again.
We started off with some cocktails: The Cucumber Martini, The Kentucky Mule, a Grapefruit & Orange Mocktail, and I chose the Secret Garden: A ginger martini with Domaine De Canton & ginger beer on the rocks with mint. For appetizers we ordered the Seaweed Salad, Edamame with Spicy Garlic Sauce, and Shumai.
Summer Roll: cucumber, avocado, topped with spicy tuna & tobiko.
Torch: avocado, cucumber & spicy mayo wrapped with seared yellowtail, yuzu sauce and tobiko.
Tiger: eel & cucumber wrapped with smoked salmon, torched squid, salmon roe, & mayo.
