Brookline (or thereabouts) sushi

  • d
  • 9

I know there will never be a concensus, and I can do (and did) searches, but things keep changing and it makes my head hurt. Looking for nice sit-down sushi dinner (so Super-fusion is off the list). Was planning on Ginza after long layoff - I am a sucker for their boat - but I read elsewhere that ownership has changed and not for the better. Fugakyo always gets crazy mixed reviews. Could go to Zen320 for its day-old - I mean half-off - sushi, if its still there. Any other suggestions?

  1. There's a new place, Fin, in Cleveland Circle. I haven't been, but it looks nice. Anyone else eaten there?

    1. My standby is Mr. Sushi. Nothing flashy, but always good, fresh well prepared fish.

      1. re: FoonFan

        Second, fully: it is not groundbreaking sushi, but I'm never disappointed.

      2. I am a Jae's Grill kinda girl...it isn't strictly sushi but it is consistently good!

        1. Mr. Sushi. It's not great, innovative, interesting or special, but it's straight forward and fresh.

          1. Tsunami in Coolidge is a good option, and I'll second Mr. Sushi.

            1. Could not rally the troops, so ended up with take-out from Super-fusion. Their sushi/sashimi combo ($45) was great and a pile of food, altho I substituted for the Philadelphia roll (can't get into cream cheese and fish, except on a bagel).

              1. I'm always surprised that people don't mention Gari on Harvard St. next to Corrib Pub. Interesting selection, carefully prepared, and well presented. I am a regular at Mr Sushi but enjoy the upgrade that Gari provides.

                1. The best sushi in that area is at Oishi in Chestnut Hill. Fresh, imaginative, everything sushi should be. I warn you, though, that it is a very tiny place and not very comfortable for that reason. But it's brilliant food --Dice K eats there.
