Fuji Ya Minneapolis

600 W. Lake St. Minneapolis, MN 55408 | Uptown/ Eat Street | 612-871-4055

Location Description:

What's gold and fresh and red all over? The hip Fuji Ya, the latest--and sexiest--incarnation of the restaurant that introduced Japanese cuisine to Mill City. Foremost among the attractions of the roomy digs include the reliable sushi bar, the vegetarian options, the spacious, quiet dining room, the cozy little tatami rooms, and the stylish bamboo liquor bar. How can one restaurant be hip, sexy, and family-friendly all at the same time? Ponder these and other mysteries, such as how Fuji Ya's udon noodles get so soft but remain so strong, over the best oshinko (pickle) platter in town. Chase the pickles with one of Fuji Ya's 20 or so sakes. Repeat as needed.
