Bugs Now Slinging Sushi

Serving raw fish, not insects.
Serving raw fish, not insects.

No, not the insects. You may recall that Bugs is the name of the unfortunately monikered project from a Jewel Bako alum we told you about a while back — now, UrbanDaddy learns the tiny spot has opened. In addition to raw fish, there are kitchen dishes, including simmered Berkshire pork belly with mashed potatoes, and okonomiyaki, plus $45 and $60 tastings that look like a potentially good value. Scope the full menu here, and try not to think about how crustaceans are kind of like cockroaches of the sea.
