If you can overlook indifferent service and bad music, give this place a shot. Skip apps and go straight for the goods: generous sushi that tastes flown-in fresh (especially the buttery salmon) and the yakitori, grilled skewers of guilty pleasures like crispy chicken skin and meaty gizzards, good-for-you eats from asparagus to eggplant and unusual finds of bacon-wrapped tomato and chicken-stuffed portobello. Bonus: You can use the pointy skewers to end your misery when 2Pac’s “Dear Mama” is played.
