Radio Host, Jack Hutton’s Restaurant of the Week: Review of Benkay Sushi Bar and Japanese Restaurant
Author: Jack Hutton (USM Student and host of No Longer Dangerous) and Kayla Bogert (USM Student)
There is just something about traditions that make a dining experience that much better. Benkay Sushi Bar and Japanese Restaurant is masterfully decorated with traditional Japanese art and architecture. Combined with a sense of ambience and comfort that will transport you to a different time. Much like the Samurai proudly displayed out near the hostess podium, the Sushi chefs on staff are chiseled warriors. Disciplined in the art of their craft, one that takes decades to master. Wielding blades sharp enough to slice bone but gentle enough to perfect each and every cut of raw fish. That is why I couldn’t recommend more that you should sit right at the Sushi Bar and watch them work. It is nothing short of magnificent culinary artwork. Benkay does not skip a beat, the serving staff are timely and aware, with smiles that make you feel at home and ready to share this experience.
