Popular Copley fish spot opens in Harvard

Aiming for a non-hostile takeover of Harvard Square, the dudes behind the popular Copley Square sushi joint have transformed the former Conga/Shabu Square into a second outpost slinging that fish ODB likes raw, plus a full repertoire of hot Japanese faves.Nod approvingly at the giant koi wall etched by a local tattoo artist as you sit at this 10-seat sushi bar, or adjourn to one of the red banquettes in the lounge-esque dining room complete w/ a second, more booze-centric bar.After plowing through this shrimp tempura & tuna Maiya On Fire w/ truffle oil, garlic chips, and jalapenos, revel in their expanded lineup of hot eats like soy-simmered pork belly and broiled squid w/ sweet sake soy. Resist your natural urge to order sake bombs, and be a real man by sipping on a mango mint mojito, or take over a bottle of Japanese rice wine to a group of lady friends, and just pray they're not hostile.
