Sushi Tango

3001 Hennepin Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55408 | Uptown/ Eat Street | 612-822-7787

Location Description:

Everybody, now! Tengo had a little cult, little cult, little cult, Tengo had a little cult... And the cult has followed Tengo, and his sideman Sefu and Tengo's brother Pao, as they blazed an award-strewn trail through all the best sushi bars in town. When he opened this little spot on the second floor of Calhoun Square, the little cult breathed a collective sigh of relief, so exhausted were they from having to keep track of Tengo's comings and goings. Why the cult status? Scrupulously fresh fish; extravagant, even overblown, sometimes hilarious rolls; and a joint-is-jumping sushi-bar atmosphere with jokes, drinks, more jokes, more drinks, and fish fish fish. Be sure to ask about the Demon Releaser.
