…as vivid, imaginative and well executed as you’d expect. The Dragon King’s Daughter menu recapitulates some of the ideas Masabuchi has explored over the years at Maido. A few items are exact replicas: the hand-rolled Citrus Heat sushi roll, constructed of red tuna, jalapenos, roasted red pepper and shaved limes or There Went Drew, made with grilled salmon, cream cheese and avocado.
