Best Sushi Restaurants in the U.S.: Morimoto

Morimoto, Philadelphia

Masaharu Morimoto, the famed Food Network’s Iron Chef star, may not preside over the sushi bar every night, but the eponymous owner manages to maintain a high standard for his food. Many of the Japanese dishes served here are infused with a Western touch. The sushi selection is diverse, but ordering simple, whether it’s a fresh piece of red snapper or striped bass, is the way to go. The bells and whistles are reserved for the futuristic dining room, where diners sit back in one of the low-slung chairs and order the popular toro tartare.
