There's a saying that goes, "Nothing good happens after 2 a.m"—and no good dining, especially. Except at Sushi Song. Every night of the week, chefs are slicing up sushi to order. With locations in Deerfield Beach and downtown Fort Lauderdale, this establishment offers the feel of a big-city late-night scene. The atmosphere is dim and cozy with candles and brick walls. The sushi is fresh and creative, with options ranging from straightforward nigiri to over-the-top signature rolls such as the $15 Japan Red Hot (shrimp tempura, cucumber, and jalapeño topped with tuna, black tobiko, and house special sauce) and the A1A (Maine lobster, avocado, cilantro, and spicy mayo topped with seared wild salmon and special sauce). This place proves eating late at night doesn't have to mean you're stuck with Papa John's.
