GINZA Sushi on ohio

`I dined at Ginza last night, a restaurant I had walked by thousands of times, but had not dined. To start with, it was completely empty. There was one sushi chef and one waitress. The decor was not much to look at either when compared to Heat, sushi samba or Mirai etc etc. The menu lacked any of the exotic rolls that have become so popular around town lately, and featured just basic sushi. I dined upon a variety of rolls (unagi, hamachi, spicy tuna, tuna) with some saba and Ikura tossed in for good measure. To my surprise the food was far above average. The preparation was excellent, the fish was clearly fresh and quite flavorful. Overall the meal was delightful. I must confess that the when the bill came, it was extremely reasonable for the sushi world these days. The meal itself reminded me of Yanase before it closed (state and chicag across from loyola law). In short, GINZA is worth a second trip and if the quality remains the same will be my Sushi restaurant of choice!!!
