Rating: Decent Casual Sushi
I popped into this placed looking for a quick lunch on my way back from the doctor.
And only after I did realized it’s owned by the same people as Summer Buffalo.
The usual ginger and wasabi (actually probably just green ground horseradish)
Sashimi to start. Attractive. South Asian influences?
The sushi took forever (relatively) to come and arrived in 1-2 big flights.
It was fine, Sugarfish level, but I don’t like it in big flights, prefer 1-2 at a time.
Hand-roll was good except for being soy paper wrapped — so Beverly Hills.
This was better. I love the toro takuan combo.
Overall, Summer Fish was in that new vein of casual sushi joints like Sugarfish or Sasebune express. The decor was very updated. I had to wait AWHILE though — and the place was empty — which defeats the point. Food was fine but not super cheap either. So I’d only go back if I was right there and in the mood. The menu was big though and I’m sure if it is crowded there are lots of attractive women taking a break from their Robertson shopping.
