Wayne Conwell has been slicing fish and finding new ways to turn Japanese tradition on end at Sushi Sasa since 2005. By synthesizing Western technique and current Denver tastes with the traditions of sushi that evolved in isolation long before it hit American shores, the chef has continued to stay relevant in a scene that shifts and changes like an undulating school of tuna. Whether you order minimalist nigiri that accentuates the meat of the fish itself or delicate constructions that build layers of flavor, the menu always holds surprise and satisfaction in equal measure.
