When I’m not quite sure what I’m in the mood to eat, I often end up choosing sushi. The comfort of fresh fish and rice, the heat of wasabi, the salt of soy sauce—it always satisfies.
Lately, my go-to spot has been Blue Fin Sushi Bar & Restaurant in Park Hill. The selection is always super-fresh, but it’s the happy hour that’s the real draw. Between 4:30 and 6 p.m., Sunday through Thursday (and 9 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday), I order single servings of my favorites—albacore, maguro, and unagi—for just $1.50 each. The shrimp tempura roll is just $6. Better yet, all house wine, beer, and hot sake is priced two-for-one.
Pairing tip: Instead of beer, try a glass of German Riesling. The wine’s slight, residual sweetness nicely offsets the wasabi’s heat.
