Akamaru - CLOSED

Akamaru has little to recommend it. Fish for sushi and sashimi are improperly cut, resulting in layers of fish separating when it’s pressed atop . , the prized “foie gras of the sea,” is sloppily piled into the tops of misshapen seaweed and rice rolls. Instead of having a bright pop, flying fish roe tastes flat. On one Friday night, a single server was expected to take care of 16 people. The owner, who is also the sushi chef, stands oblivious to problems. He’s busy cutting fish, and don’t expect warmth or friendliness if you go ask him questions at the sushi bar. The pork or vegetable are safe bets, and the blackened teriyaki pork ribs are actually quite good. There’s no liquor license, so BYOB.
