Yoshi Yoshida, who runs Sushi Wave with his wife, Cindy, is a veteran of some of Denver's best sushi bars, and his experience shows. Careful attention to detail, well-crafted sushi, expertly prepared cooked dishes and a warm welcome make this snazzy spot one of the best overall Japanese restaurants in town. Of course, most folks come looking for sushi, and they'll find it here, brand-spanking fresh and beautifully carved; the crunchy-centered, rich salmon-skin roll is one of the best around. But chef Hiddo Mizouchi also knows what to do in the kitchen, and that is to turn out exemplary gyoza and all the classics, including perfect miso soup with just the right amount of tofu and scallions, plus steamed fish and udon with the most concentrated broth imaginable. The clean, wavy lines of the decor give the place an upscale look without turning it snooty, and the staff is efficient and friendly. Catch the Sushi Wave.
