This 14-seat Gables counter—constructed out of the smoothest wood you’ve ever touched—is a great choice for a person’s first expensive omakase. The two-and-a-half-hour meal is a delicious demonstration of the reasons one pays $225 for sushi. The 17 courses are a seasonal mix of mostly nigiri. The meal always includes a trio of tuna moments that will ensure you never look at a fish’s belly the same way again. But Shingo also does enough to impress an omakase veteran, particularly one looking for a more traditional meal that doesn’t lean too heavily on blowtorches and gimmicky flavors.

Omakase

A meal at Shingo always starts with a complimentary glass of champagne to go with your first course: an oyster that’s usually dressed in something impressive, like a chunky okra ponzu. From there it’s on to sashimi and perhaps a slab of unagi topped with a heaping scoop of caviar or a slightly absurd (in a good way) shaving of black truffle. But the bulk of the 17 courses is devoted to outstanding nigiri. The rice is doused in vinegar moments before the chefs build each piece of sushi in front of you. When someone asks what your favorite bite was, choosing between the uni and ōtoro will feel like picking a favorite child. Dessert is a simple piece of fruit followed by an ice cream sandwich stamped with Shingo’s name.
