Why It’s Hot: From the Tsujita ramen family, this sushi spot is now open in the former Orris space, a room with geometric bamboo panels lining the walls and ceiling, a few seats along the sushi bar, banquettes and a patio lounge for waits. This is Edomae-style sushi, which means it’s simplicity at its best with top-notch ingredients, and omakase only, with menus priced $120, $150 and $180.
Must-Order: Omakase, of course. Expect to see a sea of interesting fish, including longtooth grouper, blackthroat sea perch, mantis shrimp and grilled Taraba crab.
Insider Tip: While a typical meal here could break the bank, you can get out there for a budget-friendly lunch; just stick with the $15 chirashi bowls: warm rice topped with a variety of sashimi pieces of the day.
