I went here for dinner to eat sushi. I have to say that the sushi was rather good, but I have had better in the city. I definitely was not disappointed though. We sat at the bar, as the place was all booked. The sushi chef was really friendly and made a couple of custom rolls for us. The interior is very nice and chic, where you know everyone here is to eat and then stay in the neighborhood to party late in their best dressed swag. Hell, that is the whole reason I was there myself! :) I think what impressed me, and I mean SUPER impressed me was their homemade ice cream. It was really awesome and you could tell it was homemade. I ordered the coconut rum, espresso, and banana which comes in small scoops in their own separate little dishes. Yum!

I love Union. But I don't love it for the sushi. I love it for the barbeque. This is definitely a trendy spot. If you're craving really good sushi, there are plenty better places to go. However, Union has a plethora of delicious options and happy hour specials that CANNOT be beat ($1 oysters, $2 beef skewers, and $4 shrimp tempura rolls). The way they dress their oysters is really delicious. They are raw, but a great introduction to oysters for friends who are not down with good old horseradish or cocktail sauce. Other dishes I've tried include: truffled tuna - good but overbearingly "truffly", prosciutto wrapped scallop - how could you go wrong here?, bbq califlower - omg this is my favorite thing on the menu, and many delicious and creative cocktails. Another thing that seems to be popular is subbing black rice into your sushi. I have not done this, but I will in the future! Looking forward to going back.

Great ambience, great food and perfect portions. The staff area really nice and sitting by the fire is pretty amazing! Love this place and love coming here! This place is more great at creating hot small dishes then sushi per say. Love the creativity!
