Sushi Kashiba is an upscale spot at Pike Place owned by Shiro Kashiba (who left his other restaurant, Shiro’s Sushi, to open this place up). You have a few options here in terms of your experience - you can wait a very long time in line for a seat at the sushi bar and get the omakase (possibly from Shiro himself, lucky you), or call ahead and book a table. When you go that route, you can choose from a couple of tasting menus featuring pre-selected pieces of sushi alongside salad/miso soup/an egg dessert, or go a la carte if you don’t feel like dropping $85 on a meal. In addition to whatever type of sushi you go for (it will all be excellent), get an order of chicken karaage for the table.
