It’s clear that chef and owner Leon Liang takes pride in his sushi, buying and slicing the finest fish he can get his deft hands on. In addition to staples like tuna, salmon, and yellowtail, there are daily specials like sea bream, horse mackerel, and fresh uni. For non-sushi diners, Kasai offers the usual roundup of tempuras, yakitoris, and noodle and rice dishes.
Ken Stewart's newest endeavor is a top-notch restaurant disguised as a fanciful homage to rural rusticity. Fish and seafood are the stars of the contemporary menu, and while the prices are as up-to-date as the preparations, generous portions, imaginative decor, and polished service make a meal here seem like a value. Impressive wine list.
One of Akron's top restaurants, clubby Ken Stewart's serves a large menu of seafood (the house specialty), steaks, chops, chicken and pastas, as well as dozens of daily specials. Prices can be high, particularly on specials; portions are massive; service is polished; and preparation is solid, if not always au courant. Impressively large wine list.
