Clear out your bank account and then clear your weekend, because O Ya’s singular dining experience is one to be savored. Owners Tim and Nancy Cushman set a new bar for special-event dining with O Ya’s opening in 2007; even today the restaurant regularly wins accolades as the best restaurant in town, if not in the country (that’s according to the New York Times’ Frank Bruni). The sushi and omakase menu is a marvel of both flavor and presentation, with every morsel—from the foie gras nigiri to the bluefin tuna and smoked salmon sashimi—a delectable work of art. Those seeking to actually pay their rent this month can stick with the homemade soba or seasonal fish entrees, while high rollers would be remiss not to order the $280 A5 Aragawa style striploin (hey, at least it comes with frites!).
