This is a neighborhood sushi place, but it’s on the fancier side of the neighborhood spectrum - the presentation here is definitely nicer than it is at most other casual spots. An ideal order includes the Extinguisher Roll and any of the specialty tatakis (seared fish dishes). If it helps you sleep at night, all their fish is sourced sustainably.
