MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Good things come in threes, and this third outpost of the burgeoning chain is indeed very good. Corporate types from the nearby office parks flock here seeking serenity, and sushi, of course. Categorized by fish type, the menu makes it easy to pick and choose from the different families, but relinquish the reins and surrender to the omakase of sensational nigiri. The chefs treat you with great care and will advise when to dab soy sauce on their creations. Live abalone, trios of tuna, duos of salmon (one torched and the other garnished with kombu), seared shima aji and eel drizzled with unagi sauce plus sesame seeds-it's all quite enticing. A5 Wagyu followed by a cup of clam miso soup is the last hurrah and delivers a satisfying finale.
