Forty Five Degrees

Good morning everyone from the 900 block of North Harrison Street! This weeks dinner was up to me, and I was thinking either a Japanese Steakhouse or Sushi Bar. I decided to do some research via indymetromix. I found the Japanese Steakhouses were a little pricey, so I decided on a Sushi Bar. The first Sushi place I found was Forty Five Degrees, and it fit our price range. Needless to say when you are lackadaisical in your research and pick the first place you see, sometimes you get more than expected.

Forty Five Degrees was another unique dining experience for The Tuesday Night takeoverers. "Forty Five° was created in order to bring a new angle to the dining and nightlife scene on Indy's most popular angled street, Massachusetts Avenue." We were missing Laura (Laaaaars) on this excursion, but we did our best not to let it hold us down.

Like every Tuesday Night Takeover we immediately ordered some appetizers. Luke got his seafood fix in with some shrimp cocktail. Aaron ordered some edamame. Beth and Wyatt tore down some spinach artichoke dip. Finally, I beasted some crab cake caper.

The real reason this restaurant was selected was for its wide selection of sushi. Big A, myself, Heath & Ashley, Beth and Wyatt all dug into some sushi. Heath was a sushi virgin, so he got to pop his cherry. According to Google Buzz, on Friday, February 12, at 12:53 Heath says, "I want to try some more sushi." Fortunately for the non-sushi people they boost other options beside sushi. Luke enjoyed some creamy Cajun pasta (I think) and Sarah some honey ginger salmon.

After dinner a few of us decided to go down the street to a pub to enjoy a couple extra beverages. Another hour of each other's presence definitely added to the evening.

All-in-all I think we really enjoyed the food, and each others presence. We also got a little culturized at the same time. If culturized is even a word. If your ever in the mood for some sushi I would recommend this place. I would also recommend being out of there by 9 PM.

  1. Thanks for all the comments guys

  2. Sorry Nick! I think this restaurant was good. But I think it is more for people who like Sushi than the non-sushi eaters.

  3. I want to go back soon. Or at least go get more sushi somewhere.
