There's outdoor seating under a shady awning, including a coveted plush sofa, all next to the harbor. Inside, the restaurant is shaped in a semi-circle: the ends offer privacy and the center allows for social see and be seen.
Azumi is significantly pricier than other Baltimore sushi restaurants, but their selection is excellent. On the menu, you'll find 4 kinds of tuna, 2 kinds of salmon, several types of whitefish, 3 kinds of mackerel, live scallops and umi, the "fois gras of the ocean". For this reason, you may want to enjoy this quality as nigiri or sashimi; their roll selection is limited and more basic. So, let your fish be fish!
- Sushi: "Their happy hours – weekdays, from 4-7 – have great prices for special rolls and cocktails."
- Best for Sushi Because: Sashimi is the equivalent of a nude model: there's nothing to hide behind! Azumi is the place to order raw fish at its simplest.
