Serving both Thai comfort food and expertly crafted sushi rolls, Satto is managing to take a few of our favorite things (read: massaman curry, tuna tataki and lychee martinis) and wrap 'em up into one tasty rice-paper package.Many moons ago, when a certain Westside Thai restaurant's exodus left a spoon-shaped hole in our hearts (and stomachs), we weren't quite sure where we'd get our drunken noodle fix in the 'hood. And then, like a knight in shining armor, Satto swooped in, ready to oblige both our Thai cravings and our hankerings for sushi at the same time—and treat us to a taste of sparkling sake while they're at it. Serving both Thai comfort food and expertly crafted sushi rolls in the former home of Spoon, Satto is managing to take a few of our favorite things (read: massaman curry, tuna tataki and lychee martinis) and wrap it up into one tasty rice paper package.
First things first: the sushi. While Satto doesn't overwhelm its diners with pages and pages of sushi options, their menu does run quite an impressive gamut from the "beginner-friendly" (the deep-fried salmon Bagel Roll is an excellent way to get one's feet wet) to the artistic and elaborate (order anything off of the "Showcase Rolls" menu and you'll see precisely what we mean). Of course, we believe that one should never indulge in good sushi without an equally good glass of sake at the ready, and the selection behind Satto's bar goes far beyond the stuff of sake bombs. We hear the Banzai Bunny sparkling blueberry version is quite the crowd favorite nowadays. And when we have a yen for something a little hot 'n spicy (but not too spicy), few things satisfy like a bowl of pineapple duck curry, pad Thai or spicy basil shrimp. PS: we have it on good authority that these guys whip up some of the best pad-se-ew in town, too. To that we say: welcome to the 'hood, Satto. We think we're going to get along just fine.
