    The wings are great, but if bones aren't your thing, try the tenders. A crispy Asian twist on a classic bar nom.

    Go on Thursdays for happy hour to get spicy tuna, oysters, and PBR at the bar for CRAZY cheap. Some of the menu is a bit overpriced.

    Must try: their spicy wings and teriyaki wings. You can get a serving of 8 and split it between these two flavors!

    Great food but don't believe these foursquare specials. Wait staff either doesn't know or plays dumb. Wish they wouldn't!

    Go see Lee at the bar. Try his 26 Jimmy, Ward 8, or a scorpion bowl if you don't need to remember the end of your evening. If you're hungry, check out Lee's Bao Bao.

    We had a Crazy Maki and a Spider Maki. Both were very good, but too big for one bite. The Firecraker Beef on the other hand was fantastic.

    Tip: Get in cab, head to Boston, do to Douzo, Osushi, or Ouishi and order sushi there instead.
