Onsen, a new Japanese restaurant, made its debut last month in the Oakdale strip mall space that Yamato last occupied. In charge of the sushi bar is Jason Chen, formerly of Nisen in Commack and Homura Sushi in Williston Park.
A once-over of Onsen's menu reveals Japanese dishes plus a sprinkling of Asian fusion standards. Which means that in addition to the hamaguri (little neck clam) soup, spider roll, sashimi deluxe and salmon teriyaki, there’s also rock shrimp tempura and marinated black miso cod.
Now through the end of the year, the restaurant is offering a 20 percent discount on all checks over $15.
Onsen is at 597 Montauk Hwy., Oakdale, 631-567-1688.
