Many locals say this contemporary Japanese place serves the best sushi in town. The kitchen obsesses over preparing the finest, freshest fish possible, arranged with beautiful sides and garnishes. The tastes have almost mathematical layers of complexity, yet the intricacy is arrived at from the simple combination of a few fresh ingredients.

For instance, a quivering bit of fatty tuna comes with a side of wasabi freshly grated from one long stem of Japanese horseradish into slivers of nose-tingling happiness.
