100 Very Best Restaurants: #53 – Sushiko

Uni Nigiri


This mainstay satisfies cravings for everything from vegetable tempura to maki and crudo. (Ombré pink slices of yellowtail with grapefruit are a must.) But the greatest treasures reside on the daily specials list, which might include katsu pork ribs in chili-soy caramel or delicacy fish for sashimi and nigiri. Among the finds you won’t see at most sushi spots: both Hokkaido and California uni plus prized fatty tuna cheek. Expensive.
