Ora’s dim lighting, dance playlist, and wave-shaped ceiling design make this sushi spot stand out among the more laid-back spots you normally find in Andersonville. But it’s a fantastic option for a date or dinner in the neighborhood if you’re looking for a buzzier atmosphere than Tanoshii—a great (but quieter) sushi restaurant down the street. Ora’s one-page menu is short and simple, so you won’t find any rolls with a billion ingredients, but the food is consistently good. They have delicious pieces of beni toro and sweet botan ebi with crispy shrimp heads, and though their non-sushi options are limited, the sweet and savory oyster motoyaki makes a great starter.
