Eat globally inspired, locally sourced "sushi"The sushi is incredible. It is hard to even say "sushi," because so much on the menu doesn't resemble any kind of sushi I have had before.
Don't miss the Kanibaba roll. They take these invasive crabs that are putting a strain on local ecosystems and weed them out. The crabs and local lobster are wrapped in potato, covered in havarti cheese and a lemon dill sauce and sprinkled with seaweed. It's unreal. Can you even call that sushi? Well, they do.
The menu is as different as the dishes. You'll learn about ingredients from around the world, cultural tidbits and ecology. Plus, they are all about their community. When I visited, all the art on the walls was painted by local youth. And the owner is often in the restaurant, recommending his favorites to visitors and greeting locals like friends.
