Highly recommended for all the slightly more conventional sushi items, but the chefs here definitely know how to play with their food.
The roll I speak of had hot, freshly cooked beef (you even get the famous choice of "wit or witout"--we went wit) and grilled onions embedded in rice and then wrapped in a beancurd wrapper flecked with red pepper flakes. What a daring, delicious homage to Philadelphia!
We were also especially taken with the Bron Sizzle roll. 'Bron' in this case is a misspelled reference to branzino, the fish, slices of which were the raw topping on a great roll that, IIRC, was finished with a tart ponzu sauce. Just loved it.
Everything delivered to the tables either side of us looked as droolworthy as the food we ate. Was just sorry we didn't have enough appetite to try more of this highly creative food.
Located right off Rittenhouse Square.
