Wako is small, but not so small that the entire place will learn about the ongoing feud with your landlord—and also an excellent option when you want to break in your fancy new shoes. That’s because this relaxed neighborhood spot in the Richmond has range, and so does the menu. Do it up with the 10-piece omakase ($98) or keep it casual and order nigiri, handrolls, chawanmushi filled with an aquarium’s worth of seafood, and other small plates a la carte. There are many ways to do dinner at Wako, which, combined with their perfectly-prepared fish, is what keeps us coming back for date nights, friend catch-ups, and everything in between.

Serious quality sushi, provided you're willing to pay. Akiko's Restaurant will even serve you up a baby barracuda.

Ken is a six-seat omakase counter in Lower Haight that feels like a dinner party filled with flawless fish.
