Michi, whose five chefs hail from Japan, fuels human motors with expertly assembled sushi, tempura, noodles, rice bowls, and other high notes of classic Japanese cuisine. The spicy salmon roll ($4) or conger-eel roll ($3.75) suit either lunch or dinner tastes with cylindrical satisfaction unheard of since Twinkie maki made its debut. The lunchtime teriyaki bento box comes with miso soup, salad, and a feast of roll, tempura, and sushi choices ($11), and Michi's special dinner box leads a parade of prawns, king-crab legs, stir-fry, and green-tea ice cream to waiting palates ($35).
The restaurant’s wines, chosen by the chefs to complement the dishes and to compliment them when they’re feeling blue, include Japanese plum wine ($5.50+) and Cuma organic cabernet sauvignon ($7+); meals may also be squired by Japanese or domestic beer, sake, or cocktails. A 10Best editors’ pick for its “authentic sushi selection,” Michi derives its name from a Japanese character meaning “road” or “way,” which indicates the noble journey of an octopus salad to the gullet.
Michi Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar
Michi Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar’s five chefs hail from Tokyo and the coastal town of Shizuoka, where they learned Japanese cooking skills using the freshest seafood. At Michi, they strive to uphold the same caliber of freshness, shipping in fish from Japan each morning to craft their menu of sushi, noodle soups, and tempura-battered delicacies.
The staff’s commitment to authentic Japanese cuisine extends beyond the kitchen. Hosts present oshibori, or hot towels, to guests so they can cleanse their hands before meals, and at the eight-seat sushi bar, dining companions gather around chefs who greet them with a traditional “arigato gozaimasu.” Behind Michi’s translucent screen doors, or shoji, barefoot diners perch atop cushions encircling low wooden tables eating with chopsticks to enjoy a reprieve from forks, knives, and musical spoons.
