Eats: Japanese / Sushi

  • For the past seven years, Xpress readers have granted the gold to Wasabi, either for the restaurant’s sushi or its Japanese eats. With sushi for purists and authentic Japanese dishes, as well as hibachi and fare for the less-adventurous, Wasabi offers every downtown diner a special dish. If you know the yam noodles, the agedashi tofu and the Dragon Roll, you probably already love them. If not, try these great eats on Wasabi’s semi-enclosed Broadway Street patio, and add tempura bananas for dessert. — E.P.
