The Scene: BaiKu arrived on the local sushi scene in early October, carrying on the motorbike-themed concept established by its neighbors, the MOTO Museum and Triumph Grill. At night, the room takes on the lounge side of its identity, with colorful lights tinting the dining room in neon colors. Chef Soung Lee and staff prepare fresh sushi in an inconspicuous corner of the space, while hot food comes from the Triumph Grill kitchen via chef Josh Norris' command next door.
