There's plenty of acceptable options for grabbing a bite at Harborplace, if you're totally stranded and starved. But Edo Sushi is the only place that's worth a special detour. This downtown branch of a local chain (its other outposts are in Owings Mills and Timonium) is the swankest, with big sunlit windows and elegant wood furnishings. The menu's expanded to include baroque maki variations not available at the other locations, but the appeal of the dependably fresh, sweet, and delicious fish, expertly prepared and beautifully garnished, is exactly the same. It's a tall order for a stateside sushi place to make you feel like you're in Tokyo, but at Edo you can definitely pretend you're not at Harborplace.
