I only had I issue and it is a minor one. If it's your first the there, you probably won't be able to find the entrance. Other than that, great food. The sushi chef was talented and had great communication.

This is a modern take on traditional omakase. Chef Aung clearly loves his profession. He interacts with the guests. The guests interact with each other. His food is delicious, artfully prepared and carefully placed on Versace plates. Aung’s curated playlist (which he discreetly changes throughout the meal to match and influence the mood) gets progressively energetic resulting with a fun vibe at the end of the night. BYOB from a liquor store around the corner selling excellent Japanese beer and sake. The latter of which was happily shared by our fellow diners. Maybe the best sake I’ve had. This is not just great sushi. It’s a great experience.

The food is delicious. The sashimi is very fresh and great proportions - for the quality and quantity a great deal. We also tried the tempura, butterfish and squid - it was all delicious. The wait staff is attentive. The restaurant is located in the corner of a grocery store and the tables and chairs are not fancy, but everything is clean and comfortable. It is BYOB. Overall, highly recommend.

About the restaurant
Brick Fire Tavern is a Craft Pizza Restaurant, specializing in creating hand crafted Neapolitan Pizza paired with craft beer, select wines, and other hand crafted dishes. By definition, “craft” in the context of food refers to the expertise in making things by hand, and usually in limited quantities. With this as our core, we are dedicated to the art of creating combinations that work in harmony with each other. Our ingredients are homemade, and seasonal whenever possible, and our menu items are uniquely balanced and creative. Everything served from the kitchen has at least one element either cooked or finished in our wood fired brick oven. We have traditional pizzas, as well as our creative and unique pizza combinations which are both fun and fancy ways to use local and fresh ingredients.
