sushi is sexy
Back to my lunch, although calling it "lunch" somehow undermines the experience because it was truly divine.
True to its location, it's swanky and tastefully designed. I liked the peaceful simplicity to the decor and loved the outstanding service.
Every dish was elegantly and beautifully plated. They were well-balanced and delicious. The prices are on the higher end but the food lives up to it.

Looks beautiful, tastes divine.

Sweet with a little kick and heat (jalapeño and garlic).
Those brussel sprout chips were amazing.
For those who are unfamiliar with the ever-changing sushi landscape, Vancouver is a hub for innovation and inspiration in Canada. As was evidenced in 2008 with the introduction of aburi - a flame searing technique. The first time I saw it in Toronto was at Guu and Wow. It adds layers of flavour to the fish, making it smoky, flame-y and really just plain sexy.
My favourite bite of the day was the Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi. Chloe's ma said it best - "I could just eat an entire plate of that...just that". Hey Chloe's ma, let's.
