Ike's new place is perhaps a bit more formal than the last one. You are required to make a reservation when you eat there, and while there may be a menu, you are unlikely to see one: It is pretty strictly omakase, and not especially cheap. If you are craving caterpillar rolls or Philly rolls or spicy tuna rolls, you are better off at Wokcano up the street. But even a few months after opening, when it was so new that the first time I went they served sake in mugs because the proper cups had not yet come in, this is probably the best sushi bar Pasadena has ever seen, where halibut and tai and mackerel flash beneath Ike's knife, sweet shrimp begin the meal alive, and you can almost always talk him into making you a crab roll. If you were a regular at Ike, this is the point where you are wondering if Ike still does the grilled octopus tentacles. The answer, of course, is yes.
