Sometimes it seems that your only options for sushi are the gas station variety or the corporate card omakase. That doesn’t leave a lot of room for fun, casual nights out, but thankfully Basho in Fenway fills the gap. This place has a broad menu with a bunch of small plates that go beyond fish, too, so go nuts with chicken karaage and steamed pork belly buns. Basho should be on your radar the next time you’re headed to a Sox game and want something other than sausage and peppers.
