MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Aficionados give this respite a pass for its odd location—adjacent to a pharmacy and accessed by stairs—but the interior opens up into a warm dining room. Sushi Taro may offer à la carte and tastings, but the experience at the six-seat counter with a single service nightly is highly recommended. Scoring a seat at the counter is especially challenging;  but once secured you're granted entry to a room attended with care and grace.
There are a series of small plates, perhaps squid ink-tinted soft-shell crab tempura or salad of hairy crab. Then, diners are invited to make selections from trays of fish, which are then knifed into sashimi. An equally striking nigiri course allows for delving deeper into the assemblage.
