Like with Benihana, a lot of Isobune’s appeal is in the presentation. Conveyor belt sushi is given an upgrade in this intimate restaurant, where sushi slides along a water moat on cute little sushi boats surrounding the chefs. You’ll want to grab at all these boats, but pace yourself if you don’t want to rack up a huge bill. Go for the rolls over straight sushi and order from your server if you don’t see what you like floating by (honestly though, you will).
This store is like SNL’s Stefon skit come to life. “This Japanese dollar store has it all... miniature Alice in Wonderland figurines, fake eyelashes, Japanese pregnancy tests, barf bags, loofahs, neck ties, chair socks, frying pans shaped like bears...” Everything in the store is a dollar fifty. Every. Thing.
