It's always happy hour when you consult your Spirit Guide. Your best friend for bar-hopping lets you in on the drink and food specials, tells you where the music is (and isn't) and helps you find the perfect spot. A great night out starts with Spirit Guide.
Azuma Sushi and Teppan
Mon-Thurs:11am-2:30pm,5-9:30pm Fri: 11am-10:30pm Sat: noon-10:30pm Sun: noon-9:30pm (subject to change)
Sure, from the outside Azuma still looks like a Black Eyed Pea, but inside every trace of country kitsch has been erased and replaced by a serene Japanese theme. Half of Azuma is devoted to teppan tables where patrons can sit and watch as a cook prepares their dinners with a few flashy tricks. On the other side of the restaurant, booths are separated by pretty panes of frosted glass and a line of stools hug the sushi bar. In addition to sushi, Azuma's menu offers many cooked items including noodles and a variety of grilled meats and vegetables that will ensure the place's appeal to nearby families and folks who are new to Japanese food. Open until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
