If you like great sushi - go here. Get the Nozawa tasting menu - delicious. This is just a sushi restaurant. Every course was great. No reservations - be ready for a wait

At Sugarfish you will not find salads or fancy appetizers or dragon rolls or mayonaisse based sauces.. What they offer is fantastic unadorned sushi and sashimi competently served and explained by an excellently trained wait staff.

I've been to a few locations of Sugarfish, and this one is small but appointed. My husband, who often doesn't appreciate sushi, liked that once we ordered, each dish came one after the other. Remember, you do not see the sushi made, but it's truly...More
