      Yes, Origami is still the best place in town for sushi.

      Although I'd be interested in hearing who the top contender is.

        Are we going to get into a discussion about the best sushi in town?

        Everyone gets the same fish, so it's just a matter of how it's stored, prepared, and presented.

        Personally I've been enjoying Midori's Floating World Cafe quite a bit. I appreciate the zen-like serenity of the place amid the insane cacophony of East Lake St. Also, the food is excellent.

          "Everyone gets the same fish, so it's just a matter of how it's stored, prepared, and presented."

          Isn't this (these) the most important aspect(s)? It's a given that any decent sushi joint is getting quality fish. In some areas of the country/world there's that variance, where the top places get truely superb fish, but that's not usually the case.

          So it does come down to storage, cutting, preparation and presentation. That clearly varies from place to place, and can vary from one place to another through time as chefs, kitchen staff, policies and visions, and other restaurant staff change.

          Maybe I'm misunderstanding your statement of "...it's just a matter of"?

          For what it's worth, I've enjoyed the sushi at Masu, though I haven't been in a few months.

          My favorite is Masu, the Minneapolis location.

              Sushi Fix in Wayzata is tops in my eye. Origami has really went down hill in my opinion.

                Lemon Grass has added a sushi bar. Has anybody here tried it? (We were there last week, but went for Thai.)
