Kotobuki Japanese Restaurant Restaurant Review

: In its big-city digs, this smaller-than-a-closet sushi spot's draw is immediately obvious: here is one place with really affordable sushi. True, the combinations offer no flights of raw-fish fancy---no oddly named dishes, no strange combinations. But the basics tell the tale---the sushi here sings with freshness. Our favorite is the chirashi sushi, filled to overflowing with sushi rice and garnished with just the right amount of raw fish.
