In the Raw

(blue plate special)

Valley View:
It’s Thursday night, which means Dante Boccuzzi is wrapping and rolling some fine-looking fish while Austin Walkin’ Cane wails out the down-home truth about life and love. That’s Sushi Blues in the lounge at Dante, a weekly, unlikely mix of real American music and expertly executed Japanese seafood. Sit at the bar to see a master at work with a knife and a blow torch — a tool Boccuzzi uses to flash-cook slices of sashimi. Even if your baby done left you, it’s OK: California Sunshine maki and soulful guitar riffs make everything better. 8001 Rockside Road, Valley View; (216) 524-9404
