Nami Sushi is filled with mouthwatering smells wafting from the Japanese dishes inked on the lunch menu, dinner menu, or sushi menu. Marinated beef and Japanese veggies comingle under a cracked-egg coverlet in the Stone Rice bowl ($15.95) while exotic mushrooms escort the petite filet ($25.95) on its journey to the plate. Sushi made to order at the sushi bar infuses fresh flavors into rolls such as the Spider roll with its soft-shell crab ($12.95) and the vegetarian Futomaki ($8.95), and lunchtime palates can entertain the bulgogi and its thinly sliced rib eye basking in a sweet soy marinade alongside soup, salad, and rice ($12.95). A full bar of wine, beer, and sake sends its crisp dispatches across Nami Sushi's open spaces, set amidst modern sculptures and façades of brick and stone held together with spicy mayo.
The passion for fresh fish is reflected through Nami Sushi’s aquatic motif and even in the name— nami means wave in Japanese. The fish is so delicious that CBS Local hailed the restaurant as on of the best sushi spots in the Twin Cities in late 2010. A marble sushi bar runs the length of the dining room, chilling the colorful slabs of tuna, salmon, and octopus that sushi chefs mold into signature nigiri, specialty rolls, and abstract self portraits. Behind the scenes, a kitchen staff churns out hot entrees such as the new york strip teriyaki, shrimp tempura, and sautéed ginger chicken.
