2018 Winner: Cafe Sushi

Once a secret shared by food nerds and local chefs, this unpretentious spot’s gotten a lot more attention lately. To sample its essential omakase, served only at the sushi bar, you now have to make reservations weeks in advance for popular nights—so plan ahead. Between the elegance of chef/owner Seizi Imura’s knife work and the pristine quality and rarity of his choicest morsels, it’s not just quietly stunning, but one of the best values in town.
