Kaiseki

$$$$215-740-9475
Hours:MONClosed

Unlike some other Japanese spots on this list, Kaiseki in Callowhill is purely about sushi. You can’t dine-in here so you have to take your order to go—we recommend heading over to nearby Franklin Square if it’s nice out. The most expensive roll on the menu is $20, and most maki come topped with things like bright red chili thread, wasabi tobiko, and a sweet and sour umeboshi tahini dressing. If need to feed a large group, they have a few options like their large combination platters that range from $17-$28 and can be filled with pieces like nigiri topped with caviar, otoro handrolls with daikon sprouts, and tuna maki.

Morimoto

Morimoto is a sushi place in Old City that’s super expensive, so you should save it for a special occasion or when someone else is paying.
