In search of sushi after a Friday swim (Aug. 3rd), I found this hidden gem in the coutyard of Kings Contrivance around 6:00pm. It's a small, quaint place that was relaxing, quiet, classy and charming. The hostesses and chef were genuine, polite and friendly. They were attentive to allergies, happy to answer multiple questions, and made recommendations that suited my needs. As a party of one at the unoccupied bar, I enjoyed listening to classical music playing faintly in the background, while watching the chef transform delicate pieces of fish and vegetables into incredible edible art. I have eaten sushi in several places in the Baltimore-Washington DC/MD/VA area and the level of artistry in which the sushi is presented is unmatched. More importantly, at Nori, the sushi is delicious! Fresh, melt-in-your-mouth, heavenly kind of delicious! I ordered seaweed salad (which was enough for two), the "Cherry Blossom" and a garden delight (cucumber wrapped four fish types with roe). Edamame was served warm with a hint of salt to start. Total of about twenty generous sushi rolls, salad and appetizer for $26. When my food arrived so artfully prepared, I was sad to ruin such masterpieces, but my hunger quickly urged me to sample the perfect bites. Ahhh, pure bliss! So good! I am sure glad I found this place. The wait staff was lovely. Kept my water glass full and checked on me without overbearance. With art consumed, plates empty, tummy content I thought nothing could top this treat. Then I was served cinnamon tea. The perfect ending to a most delightful meal. The subtle sweetness of the tea was great. I look forward to my next visit to Nori.
