A couple of my brothers and I visited Wrench and Rodent on a Wednesday evening around 7:00 and the place was busy. There was one table left and after being seated we ordered a couple of the local beers (on tap) and some filtered sake. After studying the menu for a few minutes, we indicated what we wanted on an order card. We got a variety of sushi (see picture for some) and related dishes, including spicy calamari, anchovies, eel, local yellowtail, octopus, and something called a "wet brain." By the time we were done, we'd ordered two more sakes. The staff brought out our food in shifts since we ordered quite a bit, and it worked out perfectly so we finished one set of items as the next one came out. Although Wrench and Rodent has standard sushi offerings, the restaurant also has its own spin on sushi and related food. For example, I got the oysters, and they are garnished with fish eggs (caviar) and something else I couldn't identify, although it was slightly sweet - the order comes with four oysters and they are delicious. The "wet brain" is mushroom stuffed with crab, tuna and avocado, deep fried with a teriyaki and garnished with shaved bonito. One brother and I also tried the "ginger devil," which is tuna with shrimp tempura inside of it and topped with albacore, avocado, and onion sauce - very tasty. I also got something called "fish rib karaage," but never did figure out exactly what kind of fish it was; nevertheless, it was also delicious. Several waitresses brought out food and drink while we at the restaurant, and we were very well taken care of. The bill is brought out in a CD case (clever although unusual), and with some fish skeletons on the ceilings, other fish on the wall, and various other decorations, the experience was excellent.
