Sushi Ishii is one of our favorites for a nicer meal that’s still reasonable. It’s a simple yet pretty space that’s on the smaller side, with only a couple of tables and a sushi counter. But the kicker here is the sushi chef himself, who we’re mostly convinced is a former member of Yakuza (the Japanese mob). He’s like a wise bartender - friendly, fun, and will talk your ear off whether or not you understand any Japanese. The pricing is also flexible here - if you want an omakase for $70, he’ll do it, and if you want to spend $100 he’ll do that too. The man just wants to please, and we guarantee you’ll enjoy what he makes.

Sushi Anjo review image

Don't let the chef's age at Sushi Anjo throw you off. He's as skilled as the veterans.

Mawashizushi Katsu review image

Mawashizushi Katsu is our pick for conveyor belt sushi. Don’t let the line intimidate you-it will go quickly.

Ukyo review image

Ukyo is a casual spot with Japanese/French fusion. Be sure to get the egg rice with shaved truffles and plenty of sake.

Sushi Tomita review image

If you forgot to make a reservation at a more well-known sushi spot, Sushi Tomita has your back. If you have group, try to get into the private room.
