Party central: The menu is a mad sprout of sushi, burgers and tacos. Try the filet mignon steak tacos and charred salmon, and imbibe your pick of sake, wine or a wide beer selection. We'd choose this for a casual "we're just hanging for a minute" date. But if the date has morphed into crash-and-burn, do not despair! This place has a built-in escape hatch during the weekends where you can flee to Sub 51 for lounge action and DJs helping you dance off the date willies. (DJ Koncept spins every Saturday night.) See how that worked out? Hub 51, 51 W. Hubbard.
