A much-awaited renovation gives an updated look and feel to this downtown establishment hidden away on Church Street. Blissfully undiminished is the quality of the food – seaweed salad that crunches just right and sushi so fresh it needs no adornment (though the elaborate rolls are delicious).
Grocery-store sushi bum you out? This tiny spot on well-traveled Colonial Drive should lift your pick-something-up-on-the-way-home spirits.

Serving since 1988, elegant Ichiban still requires reservations on weekends.

There are nearly 60 meatless options from which to choose, from rolls to specialty stir-fries.
