In Minneapolis Masu Sushi & Robata gets a lot of buzz for its sushi, but there's much more than that on the menu. The izakaya lineup offers small bites like a quail-egg shooter or mushroom tempura with cucumber, mayo and scallion. Meanwhile, an entire robata (Japanese grill) section lets you select everything from cauliflower to chicken meatballs to bacon-wrapped dates for the fire. Sushi-wise, Masu serves only the sustainable stuff, with plenty of fun rolls. It's hard to say whether the food or the decor is more impressive however; the original Minneapolis location is decked out impressively with lime-green accents and pop-art touches wherever you look; additional locations can be found in the suburb of Apple Valley and the Mall of America.
