Japanese restaurant also featuring dim sum.

Our Review

Why is Runa Japanese, a sushi restaurant, serving dim sum? Maybe the owners thought that opening in a space that has housed four short-lived restaurants in the past six years meant they'd need something to set themselves apart. Whatever the case, in addition to an extensive menu of Japanese appetizers, entrees, sashimi, and sushi—including nearly 50 varieties of maki—there's a brief dim sum menu with classics like dumplings, steamed buns, and wontons. (And it is brief—fewer than a dozen offerings—but also very reasonably priced, at $3 per order.) There are also various Japanese lunch specials, and while the maki included in the special are simple ones—none of the monster specialty rolls offered on the dinner menu—but there are 20 to choose from, and you could do worse. Actually, that applies to Runa in general: you can get plenty of food for two people for about $20—and, well, you could do worse.
