When you walk into Sushi You, the first thing you’ll notice is the Japanese music videos playing on the TVs behind the bar. The move here is to sit at the bar and order the omakase, which starts at a pretty reasonable $60. You’ll get some pretty inventive, creative sushi. Sometimes pieces take a while to come, and some of the sauces are a bit sweet, but when you want creativity, quality, and fun in one place, this small under-the-radar spot is where you want to be. In addition to the omakase option, you can also get out of here very affordably if you sit at a table, where you can order a la carte.
