Bozu has boldly shouldered the task of being a sushi innovator, remaking maki rolls (try salmon drenched in raw garlic), but more importantly, inventing athe bomba-sweet vinegared rice fashioned into buttons topped with fish, further surmounted with a variety of crunchy, smeary, branchy things. The party bomb presents three each of six varieties, with some room for latitude; sushi aficionados shouldn't miss it. Further, there are a series of vegetarian salads featuring grain, tofu, and avocado that make a perfect prelude to your raw-fish orgy. The premises are pleasantly louche and subterranean.
