Blue Fin Sushi Bar Restaurant Review

: The setting is industrial chic meets mussed-up minimalist, but the back patio with greenery and garden-like chairs is a huge draw come summertime. BYOB and reasonably priced, this standby sushi spot won’t break the bank, though the menu’s more straightforward than super sophisticated. You’ll find all the familiar sushi, sashimi and maki one craves (spicy tuna, salmon-avocado), along with specialty rolls like the Ocean Drive roll with tuna, yellowtail, jalapeño, cilantro and avocado and tempura crumbs with sweet and spicy sauces. Another crowd-pleasing roll: the Shiroyama, snow crab with cucumber and avocado inside, and baked scallops, vegetables, masago and spicy mayo on top. There also are elaborate, relatively affordable combination dinners (that serve one, two or four).
