Westword's Description

The 1000 block of South Gaylord Street is swimming in dining options, but if you’re in the mood for sushi, you can’t beat Japon. Located right next door to the old Japon (which closed in 2005), Japon 2.0 has vaulted ceilings, an open kitchen and plenty of space where you can enjoy an intimate meal with a companion or celebrate with a big party – and you can always belly up to the sushi bar to watch the chefs cut and craft your meal. Japon’s lunch and dinner menus are expansive, with a la carte sushi, combos and cooked options; there are always a few house specials, too. And don’t forget the happy hour, with cheap sushi and sake, during the week.

    Sushi done right. Plus, the cooked dishes always comes out piping hot. Try the sushi and tempura offerings. Sushi $4-$15; entrees $12-$29. "More Info" for review:

    Go to Japon for great neighborhood sushi in wash park, then walk down the block and see what's cookin' at The Tavern...

  • Erik B. on 04/24/10

    Try the spicy edamame, pan seared and different than anywhere else for sure.
