Sushi in CT--let's talk about our favorite places

The last thread I read on this topic dated back to '05. I'd like to start a new one to see where everyone's chopsticks are in '09. ;)

Is everyone still hot on Wasabi in Orange? I love Wild Ginger in Orange and don't mind taking a ride for a good meal. Their salad madness is oh so tasty. The name doesn't do it justice--it's spicy tuna and avocado with mango sauce drizzled over it (photo here):

As a Middletown resident, I also love Mikado. Their sushi is fresh and they have some very creative rolls--I like Shogun a lot (king crab roll), Red Sox Roll (spicy scallops inside, spicy tuna outside) among many others. I am also a fan of their tuna tartare (two different kinds) and tuna carpaccio when they've featured it as a special. They recently remodeled and look great--very Manhattanesque. My only complaint is that my coat/clothes smell musty after a visit there (kinda like a basement)...so sometimes I prefer Oyama in Cromwell (almost as good as Mikado, not much in the way of ambience, but at least I won't smell like the restaurant after a meal). I do NOT like Osaka in downtown Middletown as much--I find their sushi to be kinda fishy so I end up ordering chicken tempura rolls or spicy kani if I go there...or lately I've just been avoiding it altogether.

When I worked in downtown Hartford, I preferred Feng over Koji. It's been a year or more, so I can't provide a recent update, but I used to enjoy both places for lunch.

How about you? Where are you going for sushi and what are your favorite things there? Domo arigato.
