MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Diners seeking an authentic omakase need to look no further than Sushi Kaito. Given its out-of-the-way (read: culinary desert) location, this is an absolutely welcome gem. Owner Yoko Hasegawa christened it “kaito,” which means sea breeze, and the space with 12 seats does indeed feel like a fresh ocean breeze. This is a classic tasting from start to finish, and with just a few exceptions, it’s largely focused on nigiri. Choose from the 12- or 6-course menu, featuring every type of fish from Spanish mackerel and barracuda, to a perfect slice of sea bream and Arctic char. All of the top-notch product is treated with great care and accoutrements are minimal but enhance the flavors when employed.

Make sure you have cash on hand to tip the affable servers.
