Part sleek sushi spot, part hopping night club, somehow Wasabi has mastered both genres. For the post-work crowd, the large bar area offers a relaxing spot to sip sake. For dinner, head to the back room for hibachi or stay seated and order off the solid sushi menu. Hang out long enough and you best be ready to dance as DJs take over the dimly lit dining room. Hot tip: order ahead for lunch and grab one of Wasabi’s bento box specials. The super deal includes a four-piece California roll, soup, salad, and a choice of hibachi, sashimi, or tempura veggies. —Kinsey Gidick Dish (Winter 2015)
