(map) This “custom sushi shop” is a fun, affordable way to channel your inner itamae (Japanese for sushi chef). It’s even more affordable when you become a High Roller by joining their frequent roller program. Ordering here is easy – you start at

(map) Like the Triple Delight Soup, Kawa offers a little bit of everything: Chinese dishes, Japanese noodles, sushi. Make that a lot of everything – the menu is four pages long! Kawa just opened deep in the heart of Steiner, and their Mongolian Beef, Sweet & Sour Shrimp, and Hawaiian Duck are already

UPDATE: closed (map) If you were a fan of Mizu before, you will looooove it now. A recent bar fire gave them an opportunity to remodel, opening the place up and making it a little lighter and brighter. The same stellar view is in place, so that just leaves the question of how is the food? […]

UPDATE: closed (map) It may sound hard to believe, but there’s a reason to love Mondays: all sushi rolls at Mizu Steak & Sushi are half-price.
