Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Fukumoto is a sushi bar and yakitori izakaya headed by former Musashino chef Kazu Fukumoto. The sushi here is perfect. The marinated and grilled yakitori menu is fantastic. The friendly servers will help you navigate the menu and offer beverage pairings. Fukomoto himself is always on site, actually working (!), and everything that leaves the kitchen does so with his blessing. Try to get a seat at the sushi bar, where the chef will check in on you in his typical reserved and gracious manner. Bonus: The music is always a kooky mix of country, ’80s and techno that drowns out any chance of pretension. Order the chef’s choice sushi platter and allow your server to recommend yakitori specials.
