Origami

612-333-8430  •  $$$
ADDRESS: 30 N First St , Minneapolis, MN 55401

CUISINE: Japanese/Sushi

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Patio Seating, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS
Housed in a former Uptown 19th-century meat market, the original Origami has been packing in hordes of sushi lovers since 1991, now with a downtown Minneapolis spot as well. The lucky ones snag a spot at the sushi bar for a front-row view of talented chefs slicing, dicing, rolling and arranging their way through icy piles of the freshest seafood. The unagi maki (freshwater eel roll) is both sweet and savory. The toro (fatty part of tuna) is so rich it may leave you with no appetite for dessert. If the sushi menu overwhelms with choice, try a sashimi platter and let the chef choose for you.
Full bar. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner nightly. "For a selection that straddles the two worlds of the raw and the cooked, try the encounter: salmon, scallops, avocado, pickled ginger and burdock wrapped in nori and then deep-fried like tempura."
- Gayot
