Castro, San Francisco –
The Castro neighborhood is known for its pulsating, over-the-top party scene, and Barracuda Sushi plays its part to the hilt with cranked-up club music, all-you-can-eat lunches, and endless pitchers of bubbly cocktails.
By no means a spot for sushi purists, the restaurant’s eclectic fusion menu draws a high-energy mix of trendy uptown girls, flamboyantly fashionable boys, and fun-loving groups of young professionals that add to the venue’s colorful, kaleidoscopic atmosphere.
Early arrivers head straight for the highly coveted black leather window seats to indulge in some prime Market Street people-watching, while chatty girls down $3 sake bombs beneath a jungle of bamboo shoots, Christmas lights, and paper umbrellas.
Signature rolls come with everything from pineapple and salmon to tuna and mango sauce – a veritable sin in any traditional Japanese restaurant but a clear win for the tattoo-laden couples, sporty boys, and hip older locals who simultaneously devour them.
Although Sunday brunch brings the popular $7 bottomless mimosas to the tables – and usually to the floor – those hoping for more coffee and a little less noise can head to the sleek black sushi bar in back to chat with the chefs and watch Asian music videos.
The perfect destination for both low-budget daytime booze-fests and flirty early evening pre-parties, Barracuda Sushi is a fun-loving affair that offers fruity sushi and serious fun.
Boisterous groups of fashionable friends, weekend-chic rowdy boys, and laid-back couples, early 20s and up.
Playlist featuring remixes of Top 40 hits and club music. One TV tuned to Asian pop music videos.
Japanese brunch, lunch, and dinner menus featuring traditional sushi, sushi and fruit pairings, bento boxes, and noodles. Happy Hour M–F 5–7pm and F–Sa 10:30pm–midnight.
Appetizers $4–$11, salads $4.50–$8.50, bento boxes $9.50, entrées $13–$18.50, sushi rolls $3–$14. Beer $4–$7, wine $7–$12/glass or $26–$46/bottle, cocktails $7–$8.50, sake $4.50–$8.50/small and $8–$99/large.
Anything goes: urban chic, fashionable tops, heels, trendy casual, and the just-woke-up look.
Sundays for a party brunch that draws a packed and energetic crowd of twenty-somethings looking for some rowdy day drinking.
Lime (2247 Market Street) offers a similar wild weekend brunch scene with bottomless mimosas, half-naked servers, and club music all afternoon.
