Shawnee might just be the best spot in town to get a plate of sashimi. Sushi Mido (6010 Nieman) opened at the beginning of this month, only a dozen blocks from the Sakura Japanese Restaurant (7474 Nieman).
Sushi Mido is in the former Asian Breeze space, and just like the Japanese-Chinese fusion of the former occupant, it has a few Chinese dishes, such as crab rangoon and hot-and-sour soup, on the menu.
