I have a favorite sushi place, just around the corner from my apartment. It’s a small shop, just a few chairs for dining, and a wide window sill to sit on while you’re waiting for your to-go order. The owner and his wife are friendly and they make amazing, inexpensive sushi. One night, about two months ago, I was hanging out with some friends, when we experienced a need for sushi. We spent $75 on take-out sushi. There were five of us, and we were all stuffed by the time we were done eating, and there were still a few pieces leftover (a fact that made my heart sad, but I just couldn’t eat anymore). That is an amazingly good price per person for the level of sushi gorging in which we engaged.
You may be asking yourself why I haven’t written about this place before. I admit, I was being selfish. I didn’t want to share the secret of Sushi by Vic with the Metroblog readers, for fear that it would become too crowded and I wouldn’t be able to get my sushi when I wanted it. However, Trey Popp wrote a glowing review of Vic’s in the City Paper yesterday, blowing the secret of my tiny sushi wonderland.
So now I add my voice to the growing chorus of admiration for Vic’s. The rolls artful and tasty. The pieces are generously sized and flavorful. The service is terrific and the atmosphere is comfortable. They are on Sansom Street, between 20th and 21st, on the north side of the street. Check ’em out.
