When it comes to sushi in this city, nobody can touch Takashi. It’s where you can find Salt Lake’s best Japanese food, and it’s easily one of Utah’s top restaurants. They do creative sushi rolls, with multiple Beatles-themed options—like the escolar and chili pepper-filled Strawberry Fields or the yellowtail and yuzu-flavored tobiko Yellow Submarine.
Always check out the daily “fresh” board to find all the cuts they flew in. There are no reservations for small groups, and you’ll rarely (read: never) find a night where a crowd isn’t waiting when the doors open at 5:30pm. Enjoy your first round of Japanese whiskey cocktails or sake at the restaurant’s Post Office Place bar while you wait for a table.
