That bargain has hooked a lot of patrons, but beyond the fish offered on the cheap, the restaurant has a sizeable menu of sushi and non-sushi items that spans the pedestrian California rolls, salmon and tuna, to be sure, but also incorporates much rarer items and specials.
I headed down to the sushi joint for this week's review, eating whatever the chefs behind the bar could throw at me, from those cheap cuts of fish to dishes I hardly ever see in this town.
How was the food? Find out tomorrow, when the review is posted here.
