Hiroki is an omakase-only spot from the people behind the Fishtown Italian restaurant Wm. Mulherin’s Sons, and it’s located around the corner in the alley behind it. The restaurant feels like you’re walking into a wine cellar - the barrel-shaped door leads into a small, dark room that’s almost entirely taken up by the sushi counter. There are a few tables as well, but you want to be at the counter, where where you’ll get everything piece-by-piece straight from the sushi chef. Every meal starts with a small tray of appetizers, and then moves through things like soy-marinated wagyu short rib and crispy tilefish, followed by about 12 pieces of sushi, a cup of miso soup, and a small dessert. By the end of the meal, you’ll start to think up reasons to justify coming back as soon as possible.
