Shogun Japanese Restaurant opened in May 2015 in Newington, New Hampshire. The building was previously a Chinese restaurant for several years. When the owners of Shogun took over, they remodeled it completely. Their goal was to create high end food and atmosphere. Kelly Posthumus is the current manager. She gets her management skills from years of experience in social work. Sheís been a part of Shogun since opening, starting as a bartender. Kellyís favorite thing about Shogun is that there are so many options and creative dishes. Itís not your typical Japanese restaurant; you can find fusions of Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, and more. The name Shogun was chosen because it is a recognizable word on a lot of Japanese menus and it is familiar to people.Sushi is the signature dish at Shogun. Their sushi is not only fresh and tasty, but beautifully plated. Presentation is exceptional at Shogun, which is why it stands out from other places of its kind. Customers love the sushi rolls that blend cooked and raw fish. Two examples are the Dynamite Roll: shrimp tempura topped with avocado, roasted salmon, scallops, and white crab, and the Black dragon: shrimp tempura, topped with eel, avocado, and eel sauce. On their Asian Fusion menu, Kelly recommends the Homestyle Crispy Duck, which is boneless duck, battered and fried, then seasoned with anise for a perfect flavor. It is served with rice and dark sauce for dipping. As part of your dining experience, try a specialty cocktail from Shogunís full bar. Popular choices are the Mai Tai, or the Scorpion Bowl, which is sized for two and great for parties. Shogun is a perfect place for groups and events. Guests love to start their nights in the HIbachi room, where the chefs provide entertainment and fun, and guests always leave smiling. They also have a private room which can hold up to 30 people. You have your choice of buffet style or a fixed menu for your event. Stop by for happy hour, Monday through Friday from 3-6. They offer great deals on drafts, specialty drinks, and appetizers. Come to Shogun for unique Asian cuisine and a high end dining experience.
