With all the swank new openings in Wayzata this summer, from CoV to 6Smith, it might be surprising to know that one of the liveliest places to catch a meal is actually inside of a strip mall. Sushi Fix began as a food truck, which peddled Edo-style sushi on the streets of Minneapolis. Skepticism about raw fish being served in a mobile environment was quickly quashed by the enthusiastic charm of owner Billy Tserenbat and the highly delicious fare. Tserenbat then moved the operation to a strip mall in Wayzata. The space is cozy and often filled with customers feasting on rainbow colored rolls and jiggly baby cephalopods. Yesterday, Stephanie March of Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine reported that Sushi Fix is launching a takeover of the next door storefront.
The expanded restaurant will include a private dining area, the aforementioned full bar as well as an expanded menu. The dishes will move beyond the sushi and into Waygu beef and Asian bar food favorite territory. He's bringing in the real deal Waygu, sliced so thin it's nearly transparent, and riddled with fat threads that cause the meat to nearly evaporate on your tongue leaving only a hunky beef kiss to remember the moment.
The cocktails will include an array of Japanese whiskey, sakes, and sochu in addition to the usual bar favorites like gin and vodka.
