Dining Guide

Aiko

From the team behind Handies Douzo and Kokoro comes a third concept, a notch more modern and upscale than the others. Guests have the option to sit at the small sushi bar or in the dining room, but note that regardless of where you sit, you’ll be blasted with loud music (which may explain the youngish crowd). Expect the usual hand rolls, nigiri, and sashimi, as well as raw bar items and composed fish dishes. Highlights among the starters included the lemon-salted edamame and maguro crudo with pickled cucumber. Among the nigiri we loved the marinated bluefin tuna, kanpachi (amberjack), and—the table favorite—tarabagani, pearly lumps of sweet king crab served warm over sushi rice. For a more grand experience, choose from the three omakase options ($35, $55, and $95).
