2012 Best Sushi


With a sultry, gilded interior and a menu filled with lavish ingredients—shaved truffle, caviar, foie gras—Oishii is certainly VIP-worthy. But oddly enough, it’s the simplest dishes we return again and again for: slices of fresh hamachi that arrive to the table smoking; yellowtail-topped torched maki dressed up with sweet miso and slivers of verdant, citrusy sudachi and yam maki, made extraordinary with wisps of fried sweet potato.
