MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Be sure to pay attention to your surroundings as you are likely to walk right past this secret gem. Sans signage, it may look like a typical sushiya from the outside, but appearances are deceptive and the food offered here is in fact mighty popular. Those planning on dining in will want to make a reservation, as the small, industrial space—especially those coveted dark wood counter seats—is packed most nights of the week.
Chef/owner Ray Lee does wonders with nigiri from around the globe, including New Zealand king salmon and full-flavored Cyprian sea bream. Cooked plates like gently fried agedashi tofu, in a flavorful broth accented with “pearls” of ikura, are just as appealing, as is the salmon belly topped with a mountain of shaved black truffle.
