Best Happy-Hour Fish

Nijo

There are a million sushi restaurants to choose from in Seattle. Even more places offer happy-hour deals to entice those willing to duck out of work a little early to score cheap drinks and discounted snacks. And while a decent number of places populate the territory where these two data sets intersect (meaning sushi bars with good happy hours), the best of these is Nijo. Beyond the simple lure of pretty girls who bring you raw fish and booze while your friends are still chained to their desks, Nijo offers excellent deals for those able to make the scene. We're talking $4 cocktails, $3 Kirins, reasonably priced sake, and a dozen snacks and appetizers with single-digit price tags, most of them in the $3–$5 range. And that's not even counting the discounted sushi and sashimi. Among all this largesse, the best deals are the dancing shrimp (excellent deep-fried rock shrimp in a wasabi dressing), the $7 yellowtail collar with ponzu, and the $4 spread of spicy tuna rolls. And if you still have an appetite after that, Nijo even has a dessert section on its happy-hour board. —Jason Sheehan 83 Spring St., 340-8880
