This intimate dinner-only sushi spot on East Passyunk Avenue serves dishes that are fresh, delicate and creative. Salmon, tuna and a variety of other fish and seafood are flown in daily, and regular customers crave specialties like the rock shrimp tempura and the caterpillar roll (spicy salmon, asparagus, avocado and eel sauce). Like the food, the décor is refined and elegant, offering a low-key respite in one of Philadelphia’s trendiest foodie neighborhoods. Don’t forget to pick up drinks before dinner, as Izumi is BYOB.
