From splurge-worthy omakase spots to low-key places for maki on the go, these are the best sushi restaurants in town.
Unlike some other Japanese spots on this list, Kaiseki in Callowhill focuses solely on sushi. The most expensive roll on the menu is $20, and most maki come topped with things like bright red chili thread, wasabi tobiko, and a sweet and sour umeboshi tahini dressing. If you need to feed a large group, they have a few large combination platters that range from $17-$28 and come with pieces like nigiri topped with caviar, otoro handrolls with daikon sprouts, and tuna maki. You can’t dine-in here so you have to take your order to go—we recommend heading over to nearby Franklin Square if it’s nice out.
