At Sushi Den idling is part of the experience because as fresh, gorgeous, and creative as the fish may be, the Den is all about the scene. To the tune of urban beats, beautiful people lounge about and watch platters piled high with hamachi, mackerel, and salmon whisk by to lucky tables. Diners pluck bites with chopsticks and in the background proud sushi chefs, led by Toshi Kizaki, banter in Japanese and work their artistry.
