Lou's Sushi Restaurant Review

: With its intimate interior, friendly service and creative spin on Japanese fare, Lou's has made a name for itself among sushi aficionados. Each dish is constructed with precision and care, the quality of ingredients evident in every bite. Specialty dishes include fried squid legs with garlic sambal aïoli, oyster mushroom tempura and spicy tuna sashimi, while rolls include every ingredient under the rising sun, from yam and avocado to striped bass and salmon skin. Several varieties of saké are available, as is a selection of hard-to-find Japanese beers.
