We aren't sure what has happened to the Five Points area recently, but it has suddenly become the seismic epicenter of all things Sushi.

In an area that once boasted all punk rock and piercings, all the time, the coffeeshops and organic eateries are being crowded out by a tidal wave of raw fish and vinegared rice.

In the space of two blocks there are no fewer than five storefronts featuring the Japanese contribution to California.

You can now have sushi at all waking hours in any direction and flavor that you like in Five Points.

It will be very interesting to see how this plays out.

Will all sushi maniacs be drawn like moths to the Five Points flame, or will there be a sashimi battle of the stars, with the competitors clawing each other to pieces in an attempt to survive?
