2016 Best Sushi
Cries of fine dining’s demise flooded the foodie ether when Ken Oringer closed Clio just short of its two-decade anniversary. But that decision has given the chef, as well as partner Tony Messina, the space to more fully develop the restaurant’s award-winning sister concept next door. Along with new street foods like a Vietnamese bologna bánh mì tartine, Oringer has expanded his sushi program to include cutting-edge nigiri (roasted carrot with vadouvan crème fraîche), maki (pickled sweet potato), and sashimi sourced straight from Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market.
