This Denver institution for 20 years prides itself on its fresh fish, flown to Denver from Japan on a daily basis. Sushi Den has a branch in the owner's Japanese hometown where his brother selects the fish to be transported to the Denver locale. Thus, the fish is always fresh and unique - much more than the salmon and yellowtail that serve as staples in other sushi joints. Delight yourself with sushi, sashimi and rolls, or if raw fish is not your cup of tea, Sushi Den also features delicious, authentic Japanese specialties. The daily specials branch out from the traditional, experimenting with tropical flavors and jalapenos in culinary masterpieces like mango-cucumber ceviche and jalapeno sashimi. The restaurant is always crowded, even on a Monday night. Be warned ... waits on Friday and Saturday nights can last for a while. Also, be prepared to tolerate loud decibal level, especially if seated in the center room. But, the fish and service compensates fully.
