Another great casual sushi option, Kappo Osen is the place we find ourselves gravitating towards when we can’t decide what to eat for dinner. That’s because the sushi here is the most exciting in the neighborhood, but the menu goes way beyond raw fish. They also have long lists of rice bowls, hot pots, nabes, and charcoal-grilled skewers. Which is to say, we’ve never ordered the same thing here twice, but some standouts include the tofu agedashi, jidori tsukune, udon nabe, and sushi omakase. The outdoor set-up here is nice with its corner location and fancy heat lamps, but we like to come with a group, order big, and sit in an indoor booth secluded by a billowing curtain for dramatic effect.
