Sushi Ishii


$$$$Perfect For:Fine Dining

Included In

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.

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.
