On a Budget
“Budget” is relative, but some sushi restaurants are easier on the wallet than others, especially if you’re just craving the basics but don’t want to break the bank. Created by the esteemed Kazunori Nozawa, who closed his famed eponymous Valley sushi spot in 2012, the growing SugarFISH chain defies convention with its lack of an actual sushi bar, but still offers quality sushi at a very affordable price. Little Osaka’s Hide Sushi is known for its rules (no cell phones, cash only) but also for its super-fresh sushi and more. Hama Sushi’s “No Tempura, No Rice Alone, No Teriyaki” sign lets you know what you’re in for. What you don’t know? You get in and out with very full bellies for under $50 per person.
