Founded in 2013 by Davin and Jessica Waite, Wrench & Rodent is a space for culinary exploration and collaboration. This cozy, eclectic restaurant quickly became a destination for those who appreciated Chef Davin’s creative approach to celebrating local and responsibly sourced fish and produce.

In addition to a set sushi menu, Wrench offers an omakase as well as a list of specials that change daily. The team is committed to reducing waste and enhancing flavor by elevating all cuts of fish and veggies, as well as featuring a diverse range of species. Many menu items are simple, fresh and creative, with a lesser-known fish species complimented by ingredients from the backyard garden. Byproduct utilization drives the menu as well, and recent explorations with aging techniques have led to a dry aged fish program. Plant-forward preparations are also celebrated, and a vegan omakase is available upon request.

Why we love it

Executive chef: Davin Waite

A pub isn’t an obvious backdrop for sushi, but culinary power couple Jessica and Davin Waite make a passionate case. Their punk-rock Oceanside spot is serious about a zero-waste philosophy—almost every fish part is used in their rolls, including the Green Lantern, an avocado and crab version topped with salmon and arugula chimichurri.

    Food is excellent!! I haven’t been to another sushi restaurant that is comparable. I would have loved to have some sauce or garnish with my roll. Otherwise it was great!

    We always love the great sushi at W&R! Street noise can be super loud during the evening hours.

    Best meal I've had in a very long time! This is not an ordinary sushi place but we were pleasantly surprised. Chef Davin's creativity and unique style and flavors, combining Japanese and French influenses, makes W&R a truly exciting, delicious and very satisfying experience. I should also mention that the service was absolutely lovely and perfect!

    There are some good things on the menu but they mostly fall short. Rather unbelievable that they put a sweet citrus salt on a delicious piece of salmon. Everyone was extremely kind.
