Brookline (or thereabouts) sushi

drb Nov 20, 2007 05:52 AM

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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

              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).

                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.

                  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.
