AKIKOS RES­TAU­RANT Sushi. Chang­ing daily, the menu at this pop­u­lar down­town sushi res­tau­rant fea­tures an eclec­tic range of lo­cal and sea­sonal seafood with an em­pha­sis on raw fish.

brick walls, and the place set­tings and table­ware are made by Sausal­ito’s Heath Ce­ram­ics. L (M-F), D (M-Sa). Closed Su. www.akikos­restau­ 431 Bush St., 415.397.3218. Map 1, D5
