Japonessa Sushi Cocina (Downtown)

1400 First Ave
Seattle, WA 98101
(206) 971-7979

The restaurant that replaced Union downtown: Japonessa Sushi Cocina. The head chef: Billy Beach, formerly of Umi Sake House and Kushibar (the owner also runs iSushi, a conveyor-belt place in Issaquah). Japonessa Sushi Cocina's concept: "Sushi, Bar, & Lounge with a latin twist that'll move you." The place looks stylish (black chandeliers, taupe-and-platinum striped walls), the fusion isn't too obtrusive (though cilantro-haters, beware), and the happy hour is a good deal for decent sushi, izakaya snacks, and drinks (and it runs pretty much all day/night long).

We randomly sat down there for late lunch today with no expectations and were blown away by the quality and freshness of the fish at very reasonable prices. Delicious! Good deal!
