Last week's question: A new study found that nearly 60 percent of the "tuna" sold in the U.S. is actually escolar, an oily fish known to cause explosive diarrhea, while "red snapper" is often other species high in mercury. In light of these findings, please come up with the name of a sushi joint that hints at what patrons are really eating.
