Aomatsu Sushi & Grill
Aomatsu has lured me more than once with their 8:30 to 10 p.m. happy hour, which discounts a small list of rolls. One I’ve tried is the “Crunchy Monster” roll, consisting of mostly crunch. Seriously, just… doused in crunch. I would consider others, such as the Happy Hour Special Roll, with salmon, crab, cream cheese, avocado, and jalapeno. Beware their reputably bad service, and accept that you may need to flag down your server for second orders.
Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar
Hands-down the best sushi around can be found downtown—OK, I’ll stop—at Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse. Made with the freshest of fishes, I recommend the Rock ‘n’ Roll. The presentation is always perfect and bigger assortments arrive via a craftily arranged boat. With spacious dining, parties can choose between the sushi bar, hibachi area, or dining tables on the first or second floor. Catering is also available and all cuisine is made in traditional Japanese manner, with the notion of food being an art form.
Finally, people have what they want: a conveyor belt sushi restaurant. The Vegas Roll is loaded with salmon, avocado, and cream cheese, making these warm rolls melt in your mouth. Whether you choose to sit at the bar or in a booth, the sushi track delivers the freshest of flavors on every plate. If you don’t find something you’re into, don’t worry, you can order your favorites right from the menu.
