Mike Cohen experiences the sushi magic at Restaurant Sho-dan

    One of the truly wonderful things about writing about restaurants is stepping inside a place you have seen and heard about for many years, yet never before experienced its menu.

Let me say from the outset that if you are a lover of sushi like I am and have never tried this spot before then make a reservation without delay.

      For years friends had been telling me about a restaurant on Duluth Street called Saint Sushi, the place where sushi rolls were named after celebrities.
