Wa Sushi and Bistro

Had a great meal there Fri. night. From what I remember, we ordered the albacore w/ onions, monkfish liver with apple slices (my personal favorite), a blue crab risotto special, the sea brim sashimi w/ tapenade, jumbo crab dynamite, the "TT Roll" (I think that's what it was called - like a rainbow roll but with seared salmon on the outside), and at least one more item that I'm forgetting.

Everything was delicious. I would have liked to try the "Eel Apple Pie" but was too stuffed to do so. Nice atmosphere - dark and cool, but casual and very friendly. We sat at the sushi bar. The chefs were chatty and helpful. All of the tables were booked, but the place only appeared to be about half full.

Best of all, w/ two plum wines, the meal came to $88 before tip, which struck me as a bargain for such inventive, high-quality fare. Definitely an affordable, low-key alternative to the likes of Matsuhisa. I'll be back.
