Time Out says

CBD Japanese restaurants with interesting nigiri menus are surprisingly rare. Rustic, laidback Izakaya Chuji is here to save you from salmon and tuna belly fatigue with its kajiki nigiri. The generous slabs of marlin, with its distinct, marbly, purple-white sheen, are fresh, slightly firm and clean tasting, with a lingering oceanic aftertaste. These guys aren’t skimping either: their nigiri has a very generous fish-to-rice ratio. Wash it down with one of the Japanese beers on the extensive list, featuring the usual suspects among more crafty choices.
