REVIEW

As with every good marathon, preparation is key. Sushi E has a phone book of a menu that rewards homework. Even then, it pays to seek advice from the glamazons who attend this white marble jewel box, tucked behind the Hemmesphere cocktail lounge. Order a Windsor Knot and watch the four chefs do amazing things with sharp knives, rolling mats, and nifty blowtorches. Heaven looks like this: snapper sashimi with white soy tipped in sesame seeds and chives, and a devastating Balmain bug in a lettuce cup with flying fish roe and spicy mayo. From the sushi nigiri list, standouts include lightly flamed salmon belly reclining on soft rice pillows, the house sushi of tuna and avocado, and luscious miso cod. Service is enthusiastic and speedy, the ambience one of good cheer, and the wine offering is significant. Exploring the by-the-glass list is like gatecrashing an Oscars after-party. Is thatreallya Rockford Basket Press shiraz?
