Dragonfly Sushi and Sake

Here is my restaurant review #1.  I have become a new lover of sushi thanks to my husband.  Dragonfly Sushi and Sake Co. is one of my favorite places in Gainesville to get sushi.

The atmosphere is pretty modern with an open kitchen and exposed duct work on the ceiling.  The staff has always been really polite and attentive without being annoying.  That's a big plus in my book.

Their drink menu is huge.  There is a wine section, a sake section, a beer section, and a regular cocktail menu.  Mr. T's favorite is the Mr. Kim.  It's a cocktail with sake, pineapple vodka, passion fruit juice, orange juice, and a slice of lime.  It tastes as good as it sounds.  I love their Mount Fuji.  It's another sake cocktail with Midori, pineapple juice, sour mix, sprite, grenadine, and a cherry.  It's fantastic, and now I want one.  :)

Now to the sushi.  It's really excellent.  The one below is the krispy krunch roll, it's my favorite.  It is filled with krab, tuna, cream cheese, roe, and avocado.  It's so good.

The small roll on the right is the Ebony and Ivory.  Eel, cream cheese, tempura shrimp, and eel sauce.  So good!

One thing to make sure you try is the Sushi Pizza.  It sounds weird and looks even weirder.  It's a flat sheet of rice and nori topped with krab and shrimp with may and cheese on it.  They bake it and serve it with scallions and eel sauce.  It's so bizarre.

Dragonfly is a great place to go for a special occasion.  It's not cheap and I wouldn't consider it a place to go wearing shorts.  I would however recommend it to anyone looking for a fun night on the town.
