Sushi and exotic meats under Larimer Sq

When street philosopher Ol' Dirty Bastard once said, “Ooh baby I like it raw”, he may well have been portending TAG Raw Bar Wu-ing you into their Larimer Sq lair with the delectable sushi & exotic meats on their updated menu. For example: this delicious, non-gamey, non-pecky ostrich tataki is topped with house ricotta/ togarashi croutons. Imagine how useful it'd be to have four pairs of arms while eating seafood that once had that luxury. Specifically: this octopus/ cucumber sunomono small plate. Don't worry, the "Burnt Caterpillar" roll is one in name only -- it's actually just seared with a torch! Oh right, and it's crab meat, not bugs. The substantial oceanic selection also includes this crispy rice/ radish Guard Kampachi, aka what you'll have to do when people try to eat off your plate. Tender, soy-braised beef short rib sits under a colorful raw carrot salad. Say hello to chocolate-dipped foie gras, which's sprinkled with five-spice pistachio crumble and served aside a huckleberry gastrique. So about 30sec after it arrives on the table, say goodbye to chocolate-dipped foie gras. And of course there are refreshed cocktails like the sake/ Domaine de Canton/ lemongrass syrup/ coconut milk Ninja Juice, for when they take a break from feeding you, and feeding you, and feeding you...
