Ace Wasabi is a fun izakaya with plenty of good sushi and plenty of non-sushi for pickier eaters. Start with the fried chicken and lobster gyoza before diving into the ridiculously named rolls. Spoiler alert: the Victoria’s Secret Roll isn’t just seaweed infused with air - the crab/tuna/jalapeno combo is worth a try. It’s the kind of place where sake bombs are practically compulsory.
