  1. I'm sure opinions will differ, but for "classic" dishes, including a full range of non-raw things, Yosaku on Danforth. The really creative place, however, is Miyake (at which I haven't eaten, but have heard marvelous reports).

    1. I'm a big fan of Yosaku -- the food is always great.

      1. I really like King of the Roll on Congress. They have a pretty extensive menu, and everything I've ever had there has been delicious.

        1. I second Yosaku they have the best selection especially if you are a clam fan. Get the geoduck if they have it.

            Miyake gets my vote. The Omakase with 7 courses was fantastic.

          2. Without a doubt, Miyake, one of the best meals of my life.

              Ditto on Miyake; you won't get any better.

            2. I'll chime in with Miyake as well. I've dined there a number of times, and it truly stands out as the best creative sushi in the city. Some of the dishes I've enjoyed there are on par with the best sushi I've had anywhere (Including Boston). It's not just the best sushi in Portland, it's one of the top 4 or 5 restaurants in Portland, in my opinion.

              I'd highly recommend either doing the 3, 5 or 7 course omakase menu, or ordering the omakase sushi and/or sashimi plate. Leave your meal in Masa's hands and you won't be dissapointed.
