MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Make your way to this urban enclave—replete with a cherished counter and soaring skylights—for impressive sushi, small plates, and specialty Japanese cocktails. The window display of bamboo, moss, and river stones is a symbol of welcome serenity on this ever-changing stretch. Aside from its standout façade and sleek interior, Arami draws a crowd for Chef Ismael L. Lopez's nightly selection of sashimi and nigiri.
Kick things off with a spicy tako maguro maki filled with octopus, tuna, eel sauce, and chili oil; or marinated tuna-wrapped zuke maguro kani. Shishito peppers lend that delicious bit of crunch to a small plate of katsuobushi and ponzu, not unlike those miso-graham cracker crumbles that garnish coconut- cinnamon- and banana-flavored ice cream.
