There’s no lack of sushi in LoHi with the recent addition of Bamboo Sushi.
Sandwiched between Recess and Postino, the super cool restaurant joins Sushi Ronin, which recently opened a second location in RiNo, Mizu Izakaya and long-time favoriate Sushi Sasa.
Bamboo Sushi has a great happy hour from 5pm to 6pm daily. The restaurant’s wines by the glass are just $5 ($20 for a bottle), and a 16-ounce draft of Sapporo is just $4. As for the food, a four-piece Nigiri Set (chef’s choice) is just $4, and the gluten-free Camo Rolls (avocado, tataki yasai and cucumber topped with albacore, coho salmon and crispy kaiso), are delicious. We also tried the scrumptious flank steak with pan-seared mushrooms, crispy garlic and momiji XO sauce.
Dessert is not to be missed, and we tried them both. There was the Japanese version of a s’more and a Budino, a Japanese-style custard.
The restaurant itself is designed beautifully with intimate booths, wooden ceilings and a large sushi bar, in addition to its regular bar.
