In 2010, it was a sushi place.

In 2012, it was a Mexican place... that served sushi.

And now, it’s a sushi place again.

Because history repeats itself. And Mexican sushi isn’t a tremendous idea.

Rub your chopsticks together for Ai Sushi Sake Grill, a sleek new sushi-and-sake operation filled with dark woods and mosaic tiles, slated to open later this week.

Inside, this place is split into three parts. In the front, a low-lit lounge. That’s where most of your sake and Sapporo consumption will occur. In the back, the sushi bar. And to the right: a dining room full of red tables and orange chairs. A fine location for eating albacore sashimi (although something in the spider roll family would work here, too).

Now, you’re probably wondering if this is more of a midday-client-powwow spot or an all-important-third-date spot. The answer: yes.

For the former, fill your four-top with marinated beef short ribs, bottles of sake and shouts of “kampai.” For the latter, go side-by-side at the sushi bar and feed each other plates of Japanese snapper.

Or as it’s called here, “snapper.”
