2017 Winner: Cafe Sushi

Any chump with a few hundred bucks to blow can get an extraordinary meal at Boston’s luxury-tier Japanese restaurants. Dining sinfully well on sushi without breaking the bank takes more work. You’ll need to plan (sometimes weeks ahead) to land a coveted seat at this unpretentious Harvard Square spot’s sushi bar, the only place you can get owner/itamae Seizi Imura’s jaw-dropping omakase—complete with the pleasure of watching him prepare it—for as little as a shocking $85.
