    How about Hayakawa? It is on Citrus and Badillo (I think). He used to work at Nobu so lots of cooked dishes. The sushi is good but the cooked stuff takes the cake. Try their omakase....very reasonable. Leave room for their mille fleures (sp) cake and french press coffee.

    Their specials are always good.

        make sure you call to see if they are open.

        The wait staff is not that great and sometimes hard to find.....Try to go early since he is the only one doing the cooking and prep outside....

        Have a good dinner!
