We asked – and you answered – giving us five of your favorite sushi restaurants. Grab your chopsticks and read below; each eatery is being profiled this week with the winner announced at the end of the month.
What Makes It Good: Chefs place a lot of pride in their dishes. There are a host of exotic options as well as standard fare.
Diners Like: Putting their faith in the sushi chefs and ordering omakase. One diner raved about the eel being especially unique.
Worth Special Mention: It's BYOB. The restaurant also has its own set of "rules" it lists on its website. Among them: "The best seats are at our sushi bar" and "Do not be afraid to try something new."
