There's something about a corner restaurant with big windows that's cozy and inviting. Case in point: Zensei Sushi (3396 30th St. in North Park), where you can see hip couples hunched over plates of creative rolls and excellent sashimi. If you go, make sure to order the delish garlic and ginger edamame and the tasty tempura avocado slices. On that note, vegetarians won't have to worry about settling for a plate of cucumber rolls here-there are plenty of fish-free options, like the roasted-vegetable-filled Megan Roll. Happy hours are long and many-noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and all day Sunday. Check out Zensei's Facebook page.
