Anyway, as I looked around, I really only saw hints of a sushi place. There was an actual sushi bar tucked along the wall past the front door as well as a some paper lanterns hanging over the tables. But, other than that, it was all big tv screens and ‘March Madness’ as far as the eye could see. Based on looks alone, I kept my expectations pretty low. But Wow!
