Deep in the ocean, two fish float beside a bed of coral. Tommy Tuna: Yo, Sammy. Did you hear? My mercury level is sky high! (Fin-on-fin high five.) Sammy Salmon: Brah, you lucked out. I’ve been plucked for that killer new Japanese spot, Privus. It’s owned by the same guy who owns the Kells. Tommy: You mean that Irish pub/post-grad spot? In Allston? Dude. Sammy: Don’t knock it, plankton breath. The chefs from Ginza are doing the sushi, so there’s some serious makimono going down, along with a sake menu and some sick cocktails. And there are cooked dishes for anyone not into the raw thing. Tommy: Ouch. That’s just cold-blooded. Sammy: Whatever, man. The space has got some cool oceany themes, like wavy banquettes and a ship-shaped bar, so at least it’ll feel like home. Tommy: I respect that, man. Taking one for the team. Sammy: Glug. Privus, 165 Brighton Avenue, Allston (617-787-7483).
