Living within a few blocks of Floating World, I started going to it as a relative newcomer to the delights of sushi. I have become hooked on both the food and this restaurant. True, I miss the sushi chef they used to have, but Midori does a great job preparing the fish, and it is always fresh and tasty. I like to sit at the bar and watch her work. They always have specials, but I usually go with some kind of combination dinner--chef's choice. I haven't been disappointed. Yes, the service can at times be a little slow, but I've never had a horrendous wait. I haven't been to other local sushi places--my other experiences have been in Santa Cruz, CA, and Moscow--but I would recommend Floating World.
Pros: Good local place (not chain), great food
Cons: Parking can be at a premium
