Sakana Sushi Lounge

Upscale sushi lounge aims to smooth the pace of life with stylish drinks, lush electro-acoustic lounge beats and raw fish artfully prepared. Start with a sake-based cocktail or a 750-milliliter bottle of Oregon-brewed Momokawa. Try the $4.50 salad of seaweed tossed in rice-wine vinegar and sesame oil, cleverly presented in a chic cocktail glass. Sushi ($4-$7) comes two pieces per order, hand-rolled balls of rice capped with oily hunks of mackerel, flaky water eel and rich and fluffy egg. Specialty makis are topped with curious fruits and glazes; for instance, the Woodward is filled with tuna, salmon, yellowtail and cucumber. The six riceless maki come garnished with a spicy sauce that blazes in the mouth. Cool off with green tea, coffee, mango, red bean or strawberry ice cream wrapped in chewy mochi or the self-indulgent tempura-fried ice cream.
