Description

It may sit on a stretch of Peterson notable only for the Wolfy’s Hot Dog’s sign, but this stalwart competes in the sushi big leagues. Whether you order à la carte or put yourself in the chef’s hands, you’ll receive fish of unimpeachable freshness, with as much devotion shown to presentation as to preparation. Don’t ask for extra wasabi, though: Chef Katsu is not about to let mere amateurs monkey with his creations. Stiff prices, bland room.
