Cross a Zen meditation garden with a slick postmodern lounge, and what do you get? Something like the urban outpost of Oishii—which is to say nothing like the modest 15-seat original in suburban Chestnut Hill. And that's just fine: if anyone's earned the right to a little flashy immodesty, it's the folks who brought Bostonians their first taste of Tokyo-grade sushi. Hype, you scoff? Go for the omakase (house special) before you answer that question. The spectacularly colorful combinations look as sensational as they taste.
