If a local film crew wanted to shoot a secret meeting between a private investigator and a client, they’d choose M Sushi. Located below street level in a low-ceilinged dining room with exposed beams overhead, M Sushi is a great spot for a working lunch, weeknight dinner date, or, you know, meeting a private investigator. Order the unagi don, some a la carte nigiri, and some mochi donuts if you’re there during the day, but at night it’s all about the omakase and the rolls. Go with the $56 Lite Omakase where you’ll get sashimi, crudo, and tamago, and consider adding on some seared scallop, spicy tuna, and tempura shrimp rolls to share. Skip the cocktail menu and opt for a glass of junmai sake or one of the white grape or peach nonalcoholic house sodas.
