Goshi Restaurant Review

: This tiny spot --- known for years as Tsurugi --- was responsible for introducing Japanese food to the area way before sushi became popular. As such, it’s not a place to go for all the kicked-up trendy rolls you’ll find on newer menus. We like to stick to the basics, such as the salmon avocado roll, tuna tataki, duck udon, broiled black cod and fresh sashimi specials. Desserts include mochi and several ice creams, like red bean and mango. Local wine is available, plus bottled imported beer and a couple drafts. Note: The restaurant closes between lunch and dinner.
