Keyed up with the promise of all-you-can-eat sushi for a mere Jackson, our group of five marched into Gui with high expectations. Martinis, mixed drinks, and rolls were ordered as we surveyed the clientèle. The usual Uptown beautiful people were in attendance sipping their cocktails and bumbling with their chopsticks.
Round two of rolls and drinks were ordered and the snappy service continued. The overall favorites of the 12 rolls our table ordered were the Eel, Crunch, and Spider rolls; the favorite drink was the shot – sake, Goose, and some other yummy nectar with a celery garnish. (Yes, shots on a Tuesday!) Our group followed the rules (pictured below) and had a great time.
While Gui does a quite a few things right, one thing they have a slight problem with is matching the prices on the website to the prices on the menu. Call before you go so when you look at your bill and see double, you’ll know it’s from the strong drinks!
