Fun fact: this is the same place that does the sushi at the SF airport, which we actually get sometimes, and we haven’t died from it yet. The Ebisu in the Sunset is far, far nicer and better, though. We usually go with the fresh fish of the day off the board, but the 49er roll and poke roll are also good.
