Yutaka Sushi Bistro
The sushi is sensational, arguably the best in town. Don’t miss chef Yutaka Yamato’s Sushi Tour of Japan, a rotating sampler featuring delicacies like Japanese sardine, Oregon albacore, and beltfish (a skinny critter, delicate and white-fleshed). Sublime accents—special sauces, grated toppings, subtle cures—raise the experience to heavenly heights. Mackerel sashimi was equal parts drama and deliciousness, pristine slices artfully framed by the head, spine, and tail, with billowy swirls of daikon radish as decoration. Our server kindly advised mixing the accompanying grated ginger and scallion with soy sauce for dipping; later, she returned with the fleshy mackerel tail, fried for our nibbling pleasure.
