Best of Boston

2011 BEST Sashimi, West

Aka Bistro

It is, oddly, a twofer: half French bistro, half sashimi bar. But excusez-nous for skipping the ratatouille and heading right for the raw fish. Chef and co-owner Chris Chung, who’s responsible for the Japanese dishes, composes some of the prettiest plates around. Case in point: a lightly sweet hamachi sashimi dressed with ginger vinaigrette, yuzu pineapple, and sea grape.
