Kanau Sushi

This upscale sushi spot has expanded from its wildly successful roots in Katy to a midtown high-rise called Drewery Place. Sashimi earns the focus, with fish flown in daily from Tokyo. Celebrated chef Mike Lim’s Korean roots are on display as well. Try this: A few modestly priced standards to start include earthy mushroom miso soup, sesame-infused goma wakame (seaweed salad), and chicken yakitori framed by charred scallions. And then the sashimi! So incredibly fresh and tender, so dreamily transporting. Lim’s “chef’s choice of five” worked brilliantly for us. Same with the nigiri, which featured sweet hotate (scallop), meltingly tender chu toro (fatty tuna), and smoky unagi (freshwater eel). Pro tip: Online ordering is easy, but you’ll miss the beauty of Lim’s plating. He is an artist, producing feasts that are as visually stunning as they are delicious.
