Despite Portland being located near multiple bodies of water, the city hasn’t always been known for its seafood or high-end sushi. That was before Nimblefish. Between imported ingredients like saba mackerel that’s cured in-house, the use of local shellfish, and the perfectly cooked and seasoned rice, this Hawthorne spot serves some truly excellent sushi. They’re only serving an omakase for $85, and it’s worth snagging one of the 12 seats at the minimalist sushi counter for a special night where you want something a little more lively than a formal fine dining spot.

Afuri manages to be good at everything from ramen to sashimi - though the yuzu shio bowl is our favorite.
