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.
