Flirt Sushi Lounge: Upscale Sushi @ Upscale Prices

Flirt Sushi Lounge—open in three locations—appeared in Allendale, NJ a few years ago to some fanfare. You see, Japanese cuisine, especially sushi, is a favorite in Bergen County. What sets Flirt Sushi Lounge apart from its nearby rivals is the ambiance and the presentation of its fare. A sharply dressed restaurant, attractive waiters, thoughtful staff, and decent portion sizes all entice patrons to return to this eatery, even if the prices are at times exorbitant.

Flirt Sushi Lounge has an extensive menu of sushi, rolls, Nigiri, and Sashimi. While a few of the rolls feature cooked fish, such as tempura shrimp or the softshell crab in a Spider Roll, much of Flirt’s menu boasts raw fish. I tried their chirashi, which is a melange of raw fish draped over some seasoned rice. At $25.00, I expected something divine. While the chirashi was fresh, nicely prepared, and tasty—it wasn’t necessarily any different from other sushi restaurants’ offerings of the same dish. However, at Flirt, you are not so much paying for the quality of your food, but for the concept. The “Mi-so Horny” soup goes for $4.00—are we paying for the playful name? How about the Menage a Trois or Big Balls appetizers, costing $17 and $26 respectively. There’s a novelty here that appeals to a hip crowd, to be sure. I mean, how much snickering does the staff hear when someone orders the “Climax Roll” made from lobster, avocado, cucumber, and caviar. It must get a bit old. And for $22, that had better be some spectacularly-tasting roll!

The fish is fresh and clean-tasting, and Flirt pays attention to detail with its adornments on a sushi platter. The mackerel sashimi ($3.00 for one piece) is delightfully rich and salty, just as I like it. For those who prefer brown rice to the typical white rice that is served in sushi places, Flirt delivers both brown and white. However, there are other local sushi restaurants that sell comparable fish for less money.

Overall, I think that Flirt Sushi Restaurant managed to make Japanese sushi/sashimi/rolls dining sexy again—since this area is so overrun with sushi places, Flirt took an edgy approach and serves up its fish with a bit of panache. Just be ready to empty out your wallet after eating your fishy goodies.

Beautifully prepared and expertly-cut sashimi adorned the seasoned rice. It was appealing to the eye as well as my palate.
