Sama Zama is a "Japanese Tapas" place. With a nice clean Japanese influenced decor it is an attractive room. The menu is not like othe Asian style places and it is VERY tasty. For starters the gyoza dumplings were in thin nicely steamed wrappers then fried but not greasy and the Potato cakes crisp and flavorful. Garlic asparagus and garlic green beans very garlically and wonderful. Shrimp and calimari with Mojo Mojo sauce were perfectly cooked and tender (no rubberband calimari here!). The savory pancakes were a hit with my husband even thought there was an abundance of cheese. I like the small plates so you can eat as lightly or as heartily as you want. I have returned several times on my way to a movie at the Tivoli and will go again! These are the people that have Westport Cafe and The Boot.
