While Sushi Itto of Hillcrest offers an extensive selection of traditional Japanese fare, it is not your typical Japanese restaurant. The menu is filled with inventive twists on the traditional, often incorporating ingredients from Western cuisines. The highlight of the extensive sushi and sashimi menu is the Specialties section, which includes exceptionally unique sushi rolls such as the Mexican-inspired “CuauhtemItto,” with breaded crab surimi, chives and avocado with manchego cheese, sautéed chili and chipotle sauce. In addition to sushi, the restaurant offers a modest selection of appetizers, as well as noodle, rice, and curry dishes. Elaborate presentation and innovative parings predominate, making Sushi Itto a worthwhile destination for any sushi-lover.
