Minneapolis, MN 55407
City Pages's Description
Ba-Gu, situated in the pretty Tudor neighborhood just north of Minnehaha Creek, is a stylish, serene jewelbox of a restaurant with modern steel art on the walls and chairs upholstered in silky ruby, amethyst, and coral fabrics. It offers everything you'd want in a neighborhood Japanese restaurant and sushi bar: All the appropriate nigiri pieces, all the crisp and light tempura things, all the light salads, and Japanese comfort foods like chicken katsu. They have some fun sushi rolls seen nowhere else in town, like the sunrise, in which a rice roll stuffed with seared tuna, freshly grated ginger, and shiso leaves is enrobed with paper-thin slices of still slightly green mango: The tart mango and anise-like shiso seem to generate an almost electric energy when paired.
Tips from foursquare
LOVE the sushi at Bagu in Minneapolis.
The sushi here is absolutely stellar every day of the week; it won't take a bite out of your wallet like other places in the Cities. You'll also love the charming hole-in-the-wall atmosphere.
Hit the Happy Hour for some titillating raw salmon. Very friendly staff and good atmosphere.
have the happy hour sushi!
Great specials on sushi and wine! Check it out if you're close!
