Edoboy isn’t your regular date night spot. There’s a one-hour time limit, you’ll be standing the entire time, and there’s not a lot going on in the space besides the chefs blowtorching and slicing up raw fish. But that’s exactly why we like it, especially for an early in-the-game date where you’re still figuring each other out. You can select up to a dozen pieces—the Faroe Island salmon and butter-smooth bluefin fatty tuna are standouts—and each nigiri is served on a banana leaf. If you’re getting the hint this isn’t going to work out, at least you can finish your meal with the best miso soup you’ll ever have (the broth is made each morning from that day’s fish bones).
