One of the most critically-lauded sushi restaurants to come during the pandemic, Sozai is known both for its commitment to sustainable sourcing practices and for its omakase meals. Make a reservation and order omakase from the sushi bar for a multi-course meal, which grants diners access to dishes that aren’t usually on the menu. The omakase menu gives guests several options ranging from seven courses to the kappo — an hours-long meal that’s limited only by the chef’s imagination.
Sushi mainstay Noble Fish had for decades been confined to a cramped space in the back of Noble Fish grocery store.

Customers can drop in to pick up a pack of sushi or place an order online for hand rolls, sushi platters, maki rolls, and more.
