Fat Salmon is one of the best sushi spots in Old City and it’s a great place for a small group dinner to start your night. They serve big platters of interesting rolls that include things like plum paste and pico de gallo and they’re perfect for sharing. Their cocktails are much better than you’d expect from a neighborhood sushi spot, and they also have pink and blue mood lighting that’ll remind you of a club, but without the loud music and people stepping on your toes with five-inch heels. So really, you should just spend your night eating and drinking here and ditch whatever you had planned next. Their kitchen stays open until 11pm on weekends, so it’s totally doable.

Umai Umai in Fairmount makes affordable, a la carte sushi in a space that’s nice enough for a date, but not overly fancy.
