Sushi Nori replaced Pomodoro Ristorante Italiano in Eastlake, and while it's fun to snack on handrolls where we once twirled spaghetti, this Japanese spot is a bit of a bummer. We appreciate the plastic wrapping on each sheet of nori which keeps the seaweed crispy until you're ready to eat, but it's an awfully wasteful practice—and sometimes the plastic gets stuck on the rice, causing half of the roll to slip right out onto the table.

Our grievances don't end there: the avocado is in mushy puree form when we wish it had more texture, the spicy tuna mix tastes metallic, and the rice is undersalted. Try to avoid this place in favor of Sushi Kappo Tamura if you need an Eastlake option, or Sugo Hand Roll Bar if you just want to pound temaki. If you do find yourself here under the sterile lighting while bopping along to club hits, grab some tasty chicken karaage and a miso soup.
