Sea urchin from the shell in Philly?

Chinon00 Jun 21, 2012 10:13 AM

Do any sushi bars in the area serve sea urchin from the shell? A friend returned from San Diego raving about the sea urchin he had out there at sushi restaurant from the shell. Says it was more delicate and interesting tasting than what he's gotten back here served nigiri style.

    I had it at Izumi in the past (served in the shell) and it was pretty good. It was over a year ago though and I think it was a special on the menu that day so you would definetely want to call ahead.
