I think about once a week, I just get a hankering for some sashimi.  Well, the last couple of times, Ed and I have been eating at a place called Sake House.  It’s a bit confusing because it’s also called CDB’S Italian Restaurant.  Who would’ve thought to blend an Italian restaurant with Japanese cuisine, but that’s just what they’ve done.  The combo works great for us because sometimes Ed doesn’t want sashimi or sushi rolls; he often orders the steak and chicken hibachi cooked dinner.
We happened upon this place when we were going to our favorite (5 stars!) occasion restaurant, Caf├ęPonte.  They are both in the Icot center just off Ulmerton on Icot Boulevard.
The dish pictured is Sashimi Deluxe, and everytime I order it, the chef changes the color (of the lighted ornament) and arrangement. The staff is friendly, attentive, and the tables and boothes are comfortable. They have a well stocked bar and flat screen TVs, so it can be a great place to watch some of your favorite sports games.

Try them out...Italian, Japanese, or Pizza!  It really is worth a visit.

Sashimi Deluxe, my favorite.
On a more recent visit, we were delighted to see an eclectic crowd enjoying their Grand Opening.  The singer out in the courtyard was a pleasure to listen to and the bar was hopping.
