This modish Japanese eatery specialises in aburi sushi, where each piece of raw fish is lightly torched for a deeper flavour profile. The sleek, open sushi bar looks traditional but what they’re plating up is a little funkier, with wagyu baos and cheesy tempura tofu on offer. The drinks list is well-priced ($15 cocktails, $9-12 wines by the glass) and covers broad ground - this is a place where you can order a Yamazaki 12 year single malt as easily as a Stomping Ground pilsner.
