Sushi Tokoro | Lincoln Square | Japanese | Restaurant
A sushi spot with an all-you-can-eat special in Lincoln Square.

Our Review

Is all-you-can-eat sushi ever a good idea? On a Saturday night harried servers ran around the brightly lit room delivering grilled squid and deep-fried sesame balls from the rear kitchen, but no diners seemed to have any fish on their table. That's because the pair of sushi chefs on duty were trying to clear the weeds created by a party of eight that had seemingly ordered an aquarium's worth of fish. After their order arrived things started moving from the sushi bar a bit more swiftly, but you could see the complete lack of love going into the effort: lopsided, half-smashed rolls; dull slabs of mackerel and yellowtail nigiri; gobs of fishlike slurry and avocado gracelessly molded around makimono that incorporate freakishly inappropriate ingredients like apple, mango, and the dreaded cream cheese. You look around at your fellow diners indiscriminately shoving this stuff in their faceholes and Tokoro seems like the Golden Corral of sushi restaurants.
