The seafood at this Smith Street sushi spot comes air-shipped via the Tokyo Tsukiji Market. Typically packed with a casual crowd of stroller-pushing parents and tots, Ki is decked with dark wood floors, tables, and walls; the sophisticated mood is only slightly offset by loud house music. Inventive appetizers like garlic scallops with spicy mango salsa and smoked-trout fish cakes go beyond the average pre-sushi fare. One of the best dishes is eggplant miso, consisting of dangerously hot, pan-fried slices of eggplant topped with a thick, sweet glaze. Excellent sashimi ranges from dark sea eel to octopus tako. For rolls, the Ki is an exceptionally good combo of fish, crunch, spice, and avocado topped with two kinds of caviar and edible gold leaf. Hot entrees depart from the standard with options like the grilled sea bass served in a spicy, white soy broth, and steak lavishly covered with mixed mushrooms and truffles.
