Hit! Izumi Asian Bistro

When this place was the Chinese restaurant, you wouldn't catch me within five feet of it. What a difference a new owner, a new concept and a new look make! When you first step in, you might think you are in Midtown. The decor is modern but not intimidating. Booths adorn the walls with plenty of tables in the middle and a full size sushi bar.

Izumi serves Japanese, Thai and Chinese cuisine, including KILLER sushi. The Pad Thai also is on my "recommended" list. They have an extensive selection of sake, wine and beer and dollar sushi deals throughout the week. The owners, On and Carmen are always on hand and always friendly. Now.. pass the spicy tuna sushi.

I too love Izumi. They're menu and atmosphere are fantastic, very Mid-Townish. They have a $2 wine night which is helpful to the wallet as well. We have, on occasion, had some hit and miss service. Last time there for lunch was exceptional service. Some other occasions for dinner it was a bit on the slow side. However, overall, I give them a 9 out of 10.
