Can’t afford Uchi? Enter Komé and you will find a reasonably-priced restaurant and sushi bar with an extremely friendly staff who will all shout something in Japanese at you as soon as you walk in. We once asked what they were saying and learned they’re half welcoming you and half alerting somebody to wake the f*ck up and seat you.
This place is a well-rounded date spot for all stages of the romance game. It’s casual enough for a first date, but special enough for a later-in-the-game situation. The service is friendly and warm, and makes the overall experience feel homey and unpretentious. You can feel confident about ordering exclusively from of the sushi bar, or if raw fish isn’t your move, avoid it altogether by sticking with the entrees - there is no one way to succeed here.
If you’re trying to keep the spending in check, check out Komé's happy hour, which includes deals on beer, sushi rolls, and appetizers.
These chicken wings clock in at $4.50 during happy hour and are great as a shared appetizer.
The toro is excellent. Try it with an assortment of other fish.
Refreshing tuna topped with cucumber, pineapples, pine nuts, tomatoes, and mint aioli. One of the best things on the menu.
