Super-fresh sashimi, Japanese street food, and the kind of décor that makes you constantly look over your shoulder for Uma Thurman to appear in a yellow jumpsuit with sword? Sign us up. Other things we love about FuGaKyu: generous portions, creative omakase, the indoor pond, private rooms for parties of three or four. And if you're one of those oddballs (we know a few) who don't eat fish but love sushi, their range of non-pescetarian rolls is extensive. To really impress your date, shell out $45 on the kobe beef sashimi. Nothing says love like actual gold garnish on an appetizer.
