This tiny sushi spot right on State St. is serving quality raw fish at the high prices you would expect. But it’s good enough that you’ll want to eat here anyway. Arigato’s menu is pretty big, but you can get a mayo-covered specialty roll anywhere. Stick to the nigiri and sashimi sections. Also, ordering that jalapeno yellowtail over and over again until you’re full is a move we wholeheartedly approve of.
