Steel is a gracefully distinct deuce of Vietnamese and Japanese cuisines, employing a small army of chefs and sushi masters in the process. It also may require a small fortune to experience, so cash out your bloodied high-tech portfolio and fortify it with your platinum Visa. Vietnamese Carpaccio, sea salt and chili pepper calamari, sushi and the deep-fried whole fish are the focal points on the menu. Plus, Steel secures its napkins and utensils with hose clamps at each place setting. So the kids will have something to play with while you count your portfolio pennies.
