This is a restaurant review that I've been meaning to post for a while now. We went to Sushi Teq back in March on one of those nights where we tried to get into another restaurant but the wait was over an hour and a half. Tony had heard good things about it from his coworkers at his old job, so we decided to check it out. It's located in the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston and towards the back of the lobby. You can't miss it: it's the only place there with neon lighting and walls that change colors.
I couldn't get over how cute the soy sauce bottle was. (Me = geek!)
They have a nice little bar area near the sushi chefs. The whole concept behind the restaurant is that it's a "salsa bar featuring innovative and traditional sushi concepts paired with vintage agave driven tequila, margaritas, and specialty cocktails." I do have to say that the salsa and merengue music they were playing was quite loud, but it did give the place a fun and energetic ambiance.
A funny before and after of the edamame appetizer. Tony had some miso soup (below) with his sushi rolls. A pretty big portion.
It's kind of too bad that I waited this long to post this because I don't think these drinks are listed on their current cocktail menu. All I can say that Tony's drink had some sort of blackberry base and garnish. And probably tequila!
I remember having a lemon drop martini that night. It was so yummy!
And of course, I can't remember which roll he ordered but I do remember him saying it was absolutely delicious. I think this is one that is soy wrapped on the outside.
I went with my usual sushi picks: Negihama maki (yellowtail and scallion rolls), Maguro (tuna), and Ikura (salmon roe).
I think overall it's a cute place for sushi, especially if you're on a date and in that part of town. The prices were surprisingly not as expensive as I had anticipated, especially since it's located within that particular hotel. It has a fun atmosphere and the wait staff are super friendly. The funny thing is that they brought in a hamburger from the restaurant next door for one of the customers. I guess he didn't care for sushi!
