Sushi in Beantown?

  • w

Will be in town at the end of the month for a night. Where should I go for a sushi fix?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Ginza in Chinatown. At the 'Pagoda' on Beach St, facing Atlantic Ave, go right.

      Thanks. I'll check it out.

        I'd suggest Suishaya at 2 Tyler St. Also very near Ginza in Chinatown (and much less crowded). I think they have better quality and pricing. Atmosphere is somewhat more downscale, the staff are really friendly, the sushi is top-grade and the menu is quite interesting in other areas, also.

          Maybe I will do lunch at one place and dinner at the other. Can't get too much Sushi.


    2. You might be interested in this thread about japanese food in Boston. While it's inoffensive, most discriminating hounds find Ginza pretty overrated. I've held a pretty dim view of Japanese restaurants in Boston, but recent developments may change my mind.

          Please, what recent developments are making you change your mind? I have yet to find a Japanese/sushi restaurant in the Boston area that knocks my socks off like the ones I've gone to in New Jersey and NYC.

            First of all, I don't think you'll ever get the quality of japanese restaurants in Boston as you'll find in the NYC area. Just a fact of the numbers, I suppose. I had written off Japanese food in Boston as a lost cause in the past, and with the help of some fellow chowhounds, I'm willing to give it another chance. In the previous thread, Johnny Quest, Alan H. and others have shared their recent discoveries that I feel I should check out.

        2. Though I don't eat it myself my brother LOVED the sushi at JP Seafood in Jamaica Plain. He would get it almost everyday before he moved to Cali. I have eaten there but just got the noodles and chicken. I hope this helps a liitle :)

          1. i've been on the same quest. i think ginza's actually does a very nice job. however, in boston, you won't find a place like the Sushi-says in Manhattan, which are as authentic as you get outside of tokyo.
