Best Sushi Restaurants in the U.S.
Sushi Sasabune, Honolulu
Ordering omakase can be like rolling the dice, but it’s more than worth it at Sushi Sasabune. Seiji Kumagawa is dogmatic about his sushi—from how you should eat a dish to how sable should be sliced—but in his hands, you’ll be mesmerized by the unadorned sushi you bite into. While most of the fish is not from Hawaii, you’ll often find nearly two dozen kinds of fish from Alaska to Japan at this relaxed restaurant, which keeps dining fun. Don’t be surprised if you hear Kumagawa say, “Salmon from Alaska with wasabi. Two bites.”
