Brown Rice Sushi Restaurant?

I'm looking for good sushi restaurants that will make sushi with brown rice.

I know Kabuki does and most grocery stores will, but is there any place else? My fiancee can only eat brown rice and I'd love to have more options!

        amazing sushi/sashimi...they go and get them every morning...and the prices are even better, especially for what you get (including many organic ingredients). you can ask them to sub in brown rice for whatever they offer.

        ono, sake, ikura and uni are my standing faves. their salmon skin roll is the best i've had, perfectly crisp and with just enough bits of flesh to make it super satisfying. their organic green tea is wonderful (hot or cold), as well as the green tea ice cream that's drizzled with a little brown sugar syrup and a light dusting of soy powder.
