I happen to be there for happy hour. I got that tuna poke, street corn, and the dynamite sushi. The street corn was so good I got a second one. Tuna poke was also amazing! Highly recommended, and right by the inn at Penn.

Went last night and it was not crowded at all. Loved the chic/futuristic lighting and decor. Sushi was fresh and delicious. Bartender was super friendly and helpful:)

No, there's a wide range in dress as you'd expect from a city and near the college and hospital. I've been there in business casual as well as shorts and a T-shirt. No issues.
