MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Now under the command of Chef Shion Uino, this quiet sushi-ya features prized, beautiful seafood sourced primarily from Japan. Never, at any point, does it look like the chef is cutting from a filet he’s already sliced. The product is whole and luscious every time, which is all the more reason why the nigiri sees little beyond a dot of wasabi or a dab of nikiri.
Fish are sliced methodically, and the rice is consistently warm and seasoned. Regulars, of which there are many, are treated to special pieces throughout the evening and will recognize some of his signature dishes, like hairy crab dressed with Japanese black vinegar, as well as his unrivaled tamago, which tastes as perfect as it looks. An extensive uni tasting is a testament to his sourcing.
