Sugarfish has had a location Downtown since 2010, and even though the surrounding neighborhood has filled-in substantially since then, the iconic sushi chain is still one of the best options for fresh, affordable fish in the area. At $27 during lunch, the Trust Me gets you nine different courses ranging from tuna sashimi to a blue crab hand roll. If you don’t have time to dine-in, you can reserve a parking spot on their website and have the lunch carry-out situation of your dreams. It’s also a great way to make your coworkers very jealous.
