On the surface, Osaka could be any one of the dozens of neighborhood sushi bars in this town. It doesn't have a gimmick. There are no giant anime robots and the sushi rollers don't pull maki out of their ears or hide octopus in their hats. But its excellence reveals itself in small ways, in little moves and quiet moments. The specials at the bar truly are, and for those who are still afraid of raw fish, the menu has plenty of cooked apps, soups and Japanese entrees.
