Sushi Axiom on Henderson is essentially a package of restaurants, complete with a cozy dining area, a hip bar and lounge, and a Zen-like, air-conditioned patio. And, of course, there’s the sushi, unique to Axiom, bursting with flavor and color. “We want it to be exciting to the eye as well as to the taste buds,” says owner Sam Foos, who previously ran Sushi Samba and Raw Sushi. Executive chef Andy Tran has been working in sushi restaurants since he was 15 years old. “We try to keep the menu for a broad audience,” Tran says. The most popular dishes include the Axiom roll with salmon, crab and avocado wrapped in soy paper, tuna, wasabi cream and spicy mayo. But, whatever you’re in the mood for, just tell Tran, and he can whip up an off-menu item.
