Hide Sushi: perhaps one of the best values for sushi around. Generous cuts of quality fish, decent service, the sushi chefs are pretty awesome, and a good time all around. Even parking! Interior is sort of the mid-level Japanese restaurant feel of the area, which fits well because the price is also mid-level, aka very reasonable for what you get. Only drawback is, they are cash only.
Across the street for shaved snow at Blockheads Shavery (yum!). You can tell the crowd got 10 years younger between Hide and Blockheads-- sushi, even affordable sushi, is clearly not a young person's budget! But we didn't care-- Taiwanese shaved snow is damned good!
