Best of Boston

1999 Best Sushi

Ginza Japanese Restaurant

If you knew sushi like Ginza knows sushi—well, you’d never go anywhere else for sushi again. No other place offers such subtle and succulent yellowtail, melt-in-your-mouth tuna, tasty scorpion, and scrumptious salmon roe—and such a wise selection (with more than 50 choices, all of them off-the-boat fresh). Ginza’s chefs craft such beautiful maki and nigiri combos it seems a pity to eat them. Rival chefs at top restaurants envy them for their access to the finest fresh fish in town.
