Wasabi Sushi Bar

1228 Washington Ave. St. Louis, MO 63103 | St. Louis - Washington Avenue | 314-421-3500

Location Description:

Sushi chef Jong Wook Lee creates miniature, edible art amid a traditional yet contemporary setting in the Washington Avenue club district. A huge mural of Mount Fuji frames the long sushi bar, where you can sit and watch art in progress. Along with the customary sushi offerings, other Japanese dishes are available, from tempura to teriyaki to udon noodle specialties. For $39.95 you can sit at the sushi bar and scarf down all the sushi you can handle, or go all out and pay Lee to prepare a multicourse meal around the notorious fugu, or blowfish. Either way, Wasabi is a welcome addition to the Wash. Ave. corridor. See listing for additional location under "Central County."
