Restaurant with stacks of small plate, a porcelain cat, and wooden boats with sushi on them floating around a river stream.

Shima is the (twin) sister restaurant of Katana in North Beach. Exactly like Katana, you sit around a lazy stream and the sushi arrives in small boats. Prices correspond to varying plate colors and they don’t take reservations. Unlike Katana, the wait time won't have you fall into a dangerous existential spiral about how most of your life is wasted on waiting for things. Order the spider roll with the server because it won’t appear via boat travel, and it’s too good to miss. Shima is a reliable and casual sushi spot to come with your favorite group chat of two other people. But it also works great for eating alone while contemplating the physics of buoyancy as salmon nigiri floats your way.
