The most luxurious of sushiyas tend to be very minimalist, serving nigiri with little to no toppings and strict one-stroke soy sauce policies. We’ve spent many dollars at these spots thinking very deeply about the brine on our uni. But when we want to have fun, we go to Sushi Seki. Seki doesn’t shy away from interesting toppings—but their pieces don't go into truffle overload. For the ideal experience, make sure to order some of their special pieces, or go for one of the omakase options ($120-$180). Must-orders include the fatty tuna with pickled radish, red snapper with sea salt, and longtime fan favorite salmon with a butter-seared tomato on top. Seki is packed any night of the week, so you can throw back sake in a lively scene and speak at whatever volume you’d like.
