We sat in the bar area and enjoyed fruit infused hot saki and amazing sushi and appetizers at 50% off the normal price. Check for their extended happy hour days and times and enjoy!

Not your usual sushi place --
Started with great Sazerac - nice to find a good cocktail - paired nicely with ap-
Fried green tomatoes with wasabi haricort vert - innovative and delicious
Hand rolls really good - collar of yellowtail fresh and tasty
Macaroni and cheese with lobster was a stand-out, lick the plate good - used local cheeses. Sesme creme brulee was an amazing fusion of east/west.
Service was little slow - but so worth the wait - food arrived hot and delicious.
Not that expensive - definitely recommended

Let me tell you first thing that the sushi here is Excellent! I would highly recommend that you eat at this restaurant with friends.

It is not kid-friendly and it is not inexpensive. If you go for a celebration or a date-night you will really enjoy it.

If you go on a weekend evening you may want to ask to be seated in a booth if you want to carry on a conversation. We went on a Saturday night to celebrate my birthday and were seated in the back by the sushi bar. This is normally an ideal location, but this particular night it was not ideal or even tolerable.

There was a Naked Sushi Party going on behind us for a Bachelor Party. I have nothing against the sushi party but I could not hear our friends talk to us across the table. We had to ask the server to repeat herself because we could not hear.

So, try the food but ask to be seated in a quiet booth if you want to hear the server or your guests!
