 Q: I'm tired of not being able to get into the more popular sushi places like Sushi Den and Sushi Tazu. What else has an upscale atmosphere and great sushi?

Location Info


Sushi Den

1487 S. Pearl St.
Denver, CO 80210

Category: Restaurant > Japanese

Region: South Denver

A:It's true that Sushi Den (1487 South Pearl Street, 303-777-0826) and Sushi Tazu (300 Fillmore Street, 303-320-1672) are packed tighter than a can of sardines on weekends. But other places in town offer both snazzy settings and super-fresh sushi, including Sushi Wave (9555 East Arapahoe Road in Englewood, 303-790-8822). I also recommend Japon (1028 South Gaylord Street, 303-774-0330), Sonoda's (1620 Market Street, 303-595-9500, and 3108 South Parker Road in Aurora, 303-337-3800) and Osaka Sushi (3940 East Exposition Avenue, 303-698-9919), which is still getting its sea legs in terms of service but has top-notch fish.
