From Our Editors
The specialists at Sushi Gallery deal in edible art: white ceramic plates are the backdrop for pink tuna belly, sea urchin, and piles of bright roe tucked neatly into rolls, dashed with a sweet or spicy reduction or a savory seafood sauce. The menu is lined with the day's freshest catches and the lures used to snag them. The chefs here even invite you to get DIY with your dinner—feel free to design custom rolls or select surf clams or quail eggs for your own unique sashimi platters. The sushi is served alongside Japanese classics such as grilled hibachi dinners and udon noodles.
On the first Monday of every month, the restaurant hosts a sake sampling. The resident sake master pours sixteen varieties of hot and cold brews described as "sprightly and fresh" or carrying "complex notes of smoke and mushroom."
Sushi Gallery's small dining room is decorated to feel intimate. Crimson linens cover the tables, which are topped with pendant lamps. The windows reach from the ceiling almost all the way to the garnet floor, screened by a black, geometrically shaped metal grate.:m]]
