MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

San Bruno’s reputation as a dining wasteland is due for a re-evaluation thanks to this sleek and stylish sushi spot, whose offerings can hang with the best in San Francisco. Bright and contemporary, with dramatic pressed-tin ceilings and a coveted eight-seat counter, it’s known as a reservations-required must for omakase enthusiasts, with deeply hospitable service.

Fans of nigiri should make a beeline for the chef's selection, but the more discerning palate will revel in market specials like the silky Hokkaido scallops, sweet and succulent live spot prawns (with the traditional deep-fried heads alongside) as well as firm yet tender octopus. Everything is minimally dressed here—all the better to accentuate the fish’s outstanding quality.
