With a seasonal and local take on modern Japanese cooking, this upscale Gateway Memorial restaurant serves what some call the best sushi in town. But the menu expands far beyond rolls and the attention to detail in every dish is outstanding, from the extremely fresh cuts of fish to a flawless presentation. Regulars swear by the Truffle Suzuki roll (striped bass, yuzu kosho, shiso leaf, ponzu), the wagyu served on a hot rock, kobe beef fruit emulsion, and uni-crusted king crab. The restaurant is sleek with copper accents, a large curved bar, and a futuristic light graphic in the shape of a fish on one wall.
