Always up for new sushi restaurant

But then consider the sea rainbow papaya ($9), an unexpected treat unless you're already acquainted with the original Super Fusion Cuisine in Brookline. This appetizer is theatrical, a thick disk of papaya sheathed in crispy tempura, topped with a lemony mix of smoked salmon, tiny scallops and snow crab, and a shrimp arching skyward. It's also very good.

This is the fusion in Super Fusion Cuisine II, little surprises lurking in the eel maki and the sashimi that will make you remember this place among the crush of blond-wood sushi bars.
