Nano’s somewhat slick, vaguely futuristic and kind of clubby atmosphere seems to have some sushi fans—or at least sushi fans with a penchant for bass-heavy house music, et al—in heaven. Even on sleepy weeknights, the place seems to be doing brisk business. We found the sushi to be less than stellar—even hopped-up maki packed with tempura and cream cheese didn’t really do it for us—so we’ll find our beats elsewhere and save this place for when we have a last-minute craving for decent Thai dishes.
