Hush Omakase + Makaseru

$$$$
Perfect For:Special Occasions

Dining at Hush feels a little like eating at your really talented chef friend’s apartment—no frills attached. Part of that feeling probably stems from the fact that you’re actually eating in the community center of an apartment complex near Pleasant Valley and Lakeshore Blvd. Unlike some of the other spots on this guide, a dinner here is only about half sushi. The rest is a series of small, composed plates that would give any restaurant in town a run for their money. The nigiri, in comparison, occupies a world somewhere between the new school and old school styles, but doesn’t really seem to know its place just yet. Just make sure to call in to work for a late start the next day—a meal here can run pretty long (3+ hours), and the price tag comes with a complimentary (and heavy) sake pairing.
