Morimoto is an expensive sushi restaurant in Old City that looks kind of like the space station from Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. It’s a good place to suggest when your client says, “I’m buying,” or your boss asks where they should take the team for a celebratory dinner. The best way to eat here, though, is the $165 omakase. You’ll get things like symmetrical cuts of ultra-fatty tuna tartare, bluefin topped with caviar, and a5 wagyu steak. It’s all a mix of the freshest seafood you’ll find on dry land, and your meal ends with treats like sakura panna cotta that’s worth the hassle of trying to secure a reservation.
