Sneak Review: Sawa Restaurant & Lounge

A small Japanese-Mediterranean bite from this week's restaurant review:
Sawa is a variety show of a restaurant. Diners are treated to an Ed Sullivan-like procession of sushi, kebabs, tapas, soups, salads, entrees, hookahs, belly dancers (accompanied by ear-splitting music), LED shows, and sports on flat-screen TV sets. There is a menu for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a five-hour happy hour, late-night happy hour, weekend brunch, wines, bottle service, and cocktails (22 flavors of vodka) -- plus an extensive 18-item bill of fare for dogs. The only thing missing is a sommelier named Topo Gigio.
