Ba-Gu, situated in the pretty Tudor neighborhood just north of Minnehaha Creek, is a stylish, serene jewelbox of a restaurant with modern steel art on the walls and chairs upholstered in silky ruby, amethyst, and coral fabrics. It offers everything you'd want in a neighborhood Japanese restaurant and sushi bar: All the appropriate nigiri pieces, all the crisp and light tempura things, all the light salads, and Japanese comfort foods like chicken katsu. They have some fun sushi rolls seen nowhere else in town, like the sunrise, in which a rice roll stuffed with seared tuna, freshly grated ginger, and shiso leaves is enrobed with paper-thin slices of still slightly green mango: The tart mango and anise-like shiso seem to generate an almost electric energy when paired.
