Yes, friends, sushi is alive and well in French Québec, thanks to Yuzu, a wonderful Japanese restaurant and sushi bar nestled in the hip and trendy St.-Roch district. A takeout counter nestled in the fancy Holt Renfrew shop does great business, while Yuzu's soothing dining room combines Eastern Zen design with an urban feel—true to the restaurant's aim of reinventing Japanese cuisine to suit culinary trends. In addition to classic sushi bar fare like maki rolls, sashimi and tartares, a chef's tasting menu is available in five or six courses, the latter including foie gras. House specialties include bluefin tuna tataki with green shiso pesto, Boston cut beef and truffled quail egg served with spicy Asian pear, balsamic fig and coriander, and lobster ceviche with clementine oil, fresh wasabi, lobster ravioli and Kafir cream.
