High-end omakase spots are all over San Francisco, but for a more informal experience with high-quality fish, turn to Sushi Shio. The casual spot in the Mission specializes in a $90 chef’s menu with ten pieces of nigiri, plus several small plates, miso soup, and dessert. Go for the eight-piece, $39 tasting set if you want to eschew the buttery toro bruschetta, refreshing snow crab salad, and yellowtail marinated in yuzu olive oil. The omakase might not be the most memorable you’ll ever have, but if you’re looking for a chill spot to eat with a group and get your caviar-topped toro without paying a quarter’s worth of rent, Sushi Shio gets it done.
