Izumi chef Corey Baver has crafted a menu of safe sushi basics, but his dexterity with Japanese flavors shines in the special maki rolls, like the Remy Roll, a super-size combo of eel, whitefish and crab topped with bacon-like bonito flakes and drizzled with sweet eel sauce and spicy aioli.

I've been to Izumi twice now and both times I had a pretty pleasant experience. I have had both the sashimi and a couple of the speciality rolls. My wife and I enjoyed the experience both times. The izumi roll is very good as well. I would forgo the dessert, as it wasn't all that great. But it's a fantastic addition to a neighborhood filled with great BYO's but not much diversity of food.

Well 24 dollars will get you 4 bites and I mean bites of food and 2 half cups of soup. Pretty sure they dropped the food before they put it in the bag it looked so pathetic, thanks a bunch Izumi
