Nagano: How about no.

It was a beautiful evening, so I decided to go for a stroll with OldBean. Upon nearing the end of our trip, I got hungry, and decided to give Nagano a second chance (also because it was the only sushi open nearby). The first time I came here (when they first opened), the sushi was falling on the side and there were a lot of bones in my sashimi.

They were pretty friendly when we walked in, then I asked for take out. There was an older lady who was very nice and chatted with me while I was deciding what to get, and a younger lady who...gave me the stink eye. I don't know how I already offended her. Anyhow, I couldn't decide so I just got their Assorted Sushi B ($13.99). It wasn't a very busy night, but it took them over 20 minutes to get our order ready.

It looked pretty decent, the fish was fresh. There were 2 pieces Atlantic salmon, and one piece of tuna, tai, hokkigai, tamago, sockeye salmon, inari, and unagi. I was surprised at how dark the unagi was, it was quite dry and nearly black. I figured they burned it, which they did, but it was crispy! Rice to fish ratio is quite good, I liked it. Kinda confused with the sockeye salmon and hokkigai pieces as to how they were cut, but nonetheless it served to alleviate my sushi craving. Would I go back though? Maybe in another 5 years if they're still around. Or never again.
