Westword's Description

"Kokoro bebop" -- that's what chef Wayne Conwell's doing at the very hip, ultra-modern Sushi Sasa. "Kokoro" from the heart of traditional Japanese culture, "bebop" from his tendency to riff on and reinterpret Japanese soul food. More than that, he's adding to the canon of Japanese cuisine, bringing in the influences of Italian and French food, as well as an intimate understanding of American tastes. The menu is fusion without being fusion, new but classic -- and all of the sushi is superb. Bring the gold card and don't forget to make reservations.

    It was my friends birthday 3/2/2012 this was the worst service I have ever received. Waiter was rude trying to hurry us up, he kept coming back telling us you have 45 minutes, come back again you have 30 minutes, now you have 15 minutes. It would have been nice to ask our party of 12 we wanted more drinks or how was the food or did we need anything else. I will NEVER go back... More >>
