Sushi and cooking bar Florence

One of the great things about going out in Florence are the bars. Not only are they ultra modern with lots of beautiful young people but they also serve food - and what's more it is free! We went twice to a great place near our hotel called Flor in Viale Filippo Strozzi. They call this a cooking bar but it also had it's own resident Japanese Sushi chef preparing little snacks all evening on the house. Lots of lovely little dishes of Sushi and Sashimi. Throughout the evening another chef is preparing small samples of pasta, tasty bruchetta (a traditional Florentine appetiser) and all manner of other tasty morsels. Every so often a waitress will visit your table and place an assortment of snacks to eat. There really is no point in booking a restaurant because after visiting this cocktail bar you are full. We thought 'Why don't they do this at home?' wouldn't it be great?
