You could go to Yuzu and order simple, traditional sushi, but that’s not the best way to enjoy this restaurant. Instead, come for the massive, crazily artistic rolls. A giant Dragon Roll with shrimp tempura, avocado, and unagi sounds basic - until it shows up with a preposterous dragon drawn out of food-colored spicy mayo. It’s a little ridiculous, but it looks cool, and tastes good. That’s pretty much Yuzu - not sushi worth driving across town for, but a great spot for a group hang in the neighborhood.

Whisk serves breakfast & brunch seven days a week, and then mostly burgers for dinner after 5 pm. It's a good BYOB spot to have on the radar.
Flo is a Mexican-American restaurant best saved for the weekends, because the weekends are when you eat Huevos Rancheros & Fruity Pebbles French Toast

Excellent sushi in an unlikely spot. This tiny restaurant at the bottom of the Hilton hotel on Mies van der Rohe Way street is worth a trip for any real sushi fan.
Yusho likes to get weird and interesting with Japanese inspired food and cooking styles. It's a unique and enjoyable Avondale spot.
