Disclaimer

The primary source for this guide has been the alt.food.sushi newsgroup, plus some personal communications, and for the small number of places where I've actually eaten, my own opinions. The opinions contained here are ostensibly those of the originators of the messages cited at each review, and constitute in no way a recommendation for or against the subject establishments on my part or on the part of any present or past host of this site.

I can make no guarantee of the accuracy of this information. Prior to exploring any establishment mentioned in these pages, I would recommend verifying both that it is indeed still open, and its exact location.

And of course, updates and additional feedback are welcome and invited!
