To say fans of Daigo, the long-running Richmond sushi staple, were devastated when it closed in the summer of 2022 is like saying Michelle Yeoh is just a “good” actor—an understatement of the century. But on the bright side, the old space is now occupied by a sushi newcomer that’s just as exciting. Shoshin Sushi is the answer to all your casual weeknight sushi needs. The low-key spot has range: You can walk in alone for some quality nigiri at the bar, meet a few friends to inhale fantastic baked rolls doused in spicy aioli, or have an extra fancy date night with their $80 omakase. Whatever you do, start things off with the decadent “Daigo Shot,” a nod to the old menu favorite that comes with yellowtail, truffle ponzu, and a tiny quail egg yolk.
