Prime Sushi opened late last year in the former Accurso’s Italian Restaurant space; owners Steve and Jasmine Young reworked the interior into a charming and playful mashup of the former Italian spot with a sleek sushi bar.
Prime Sushi’s menu is about half raw and half hot dishes: You’ll find sushi, sashimi, maki rolls and combination platters offered alongside bento boxes with chicken teriyaki or tonkatsu pork, plus ramen, Korean bulgogi and bibimbap bowls. There are 26 different maki rolls on the menu, plus two dozen raw, baked or tempura rolls – try the Strawberry Fields with avocado, crab, cream cheese and shrimp tempura, wrapped in soy paper and topped with strawberries. The bar is still front and center in the space, and the drinks pack a serious punch. Cocktails include the Japan with Fashion, a take on the traditional Horsefeather, made with bourbon, spicy ginger, bitters, Amaro Meletti and an orange-peel garnish.
