Sushi, once exotic, is now as conventional as a burger and fries. Even in St. Louis, where saltwater is merely a rumor, you can have luscious, wallet-busting toro, supermarket prepackaged rainbow rolls, and everything in between. And if the market is saturated, restaurateurs must be the last to know: The past year has seen numerous new sushi restaurants open -- so many that I would have to dedicate a month of reviews to visit them all.
This week I offer the first of a two-part look at new sushi restaurants in St. Louis. First up: Mizu in the Loft District and Ki Sushi in Wildwood. Check back here tomorrow to see what I think.
