I had a long glowing review about this place that I visited last night but as I was going to post it, my boss came in unannounced forcing me to use my ninja computer skills to pull up a spreadsheet in .3 secs. In the process, I killed my post.
So like a novel in school that you never read, here are the footnotes:
Great Space: you can sit in a private booth, at large table, at the bar or sushi bar-use to be Kaizan.
Very good, fresh fish that comes in daily (according to the main sushi chef).
Good variety of fish/shellfish/raw bar and a nice menu if sushi is not your thing.
Amazing preparation: Both chefs that night have been in the industry in and around the region for more than 15 years. The food reflected their skill level.
Priced below most good/average sushi spots I've been to in Philly.
Also, full bar, not byo.
In conclusion, it's the best sushi I have had in the city in probably a year (since my fav place changed owners). Very fresh, melt in your mouth fish with great presentation and service. If you like sushi, and are in the city, give it a try.
