    Very good sushi, and it transforms into one of the most popular dance clubs in down on the weekends at night.

    Rock shrimp salad can be app for four people! Try the surf and turf roll and pork belly apps. They are big enough for dinner---and delish.

    Order the martini with the habanero vodka. But DON'T get the 5 Toros 5 ways. It's like 10 chiclet sized pieces of fish (but sliced as thin as paper) for 20$ it looks like Barbie doll food!
