Kifune: Best Kept Secret in Venice!
This little-known Venice gem is often over-looked but is far superior to the more popular, trendy sushi joints in the area. The sushi bar is the biggest draw and regulars will wait for a coveted seat during peak times. The head chef, Hide (aka Tiger) is the highlight of the sushi bar but his, sometimes, off-color sense of humor isn't for everyone. If you can handle it, he's always riot and the regulars accent the fun to be had there. If you're not in the mood to wait for the sushi bar, you can always be seated in the restaurant, and there's usually never a wait for a table.
Favorite Dish: The asparagus appetizer is a favorite. I order it every time! Check out the lobster dynamite, another favorite. If it's available the toro and / or blue fin is always a treat. Any of the sushi is always stellar! And the sunomono is freshly made by the sushi chefs.
