So what if we live in the "cradle of innovation?"
We still have to follow the rules.
When it comes to dining at Ichi Sushi + Ni Bar, Chef Tim Archuleta has made those rules crystal clear.
Written onto a giant mural of bold black instructions by local artist Erik Marinovich, here are Ichi's commandments:
Price: 2 (out of 4)
Noise: 2 (out of 4)
Parking: Metered street
Scene: Sushi purists, Ichi devotees, and Bernalwood locals
Best bets: Motsuni (short ribs and beef tripe); chicken skewers; Cat's Meow cocktail; and really any item from the sushi menu
Japanese flavor: Chef Tim Archuleta designed and handmade the blonde wooden chairs and shelves throughout. Amber sake bottles provide the lighting above the bars and, of course, the playful sushi-eating rules mural offers keen advice.
