Fatty tuna. Salmon caviar. Sea urchin. These are just a handful of the top-notch ingredients that the chef works with at Takeshi Sushi, which just debuted in Fairfax a little more than a month ago. In addition to the fresh nigiri, the team also skillfully creates classic and contemporary sushi rolls, as well as a handful of kitchen appetizers and entrees.
Invite a foodie friend along for dinner and share a few apps to start, like the octopus wasabi or the poke bowl topped with fresh tuna. Then order a handful of different nigiri bites and sushi rolls to try. You can go with something traditional, such as the spicy tuna roll or the California roll. If you’re looking for something more unique, opt for the signature Takeshi roll, stuffed with baked scallops, eel, and salmon, or the Crazy roll, packed with salmon, tuna, white fish, crab, and avocado.
