Anchorage, Seward or Homer sushi?

I've searched this board and cannot find mentions of good sushi places in the above cities. We are from Los Angeles and can get great sushi but I thought all the fresh fish in Alaska would make for exceptional sushi. Recommendations welcome! Thanks.

  1. There are no sushi places in Homer or Seward.

    Ultimately, since most sushi uses warmer-water fish, and fish is supposed to have been frozen before being used for sushi, you're really not going to benefit from eating sushi in Anchorage (Dish claims to have Alaskan king crab, but I've not eaten there to check it out). You'd be better off just eating cooked fish at a place like Simon & Seafort's in Anchorage or Yoly's Bistro in Seward.

    420 L Street, Anchorage, AK 99501

    Yoly's Bistro
    220 4th Ave, Seward, AK 99664

      Really? Well, I was impressed with the Japanese restaurant next to New Sagaya. I was impressed. Little spent on atmosphere, but a lot of time spent with their food. It's just a joy to walk in and look at what everyone else is eating and thinking... so much wonderful food, so little stomach space. No wonder the Romans were fond of their vomitoriums...

      Oh! And to those from the DA's office who go there to eat? KEEP YOUR VOICES DOWN! I definitely heard an ear-ful of all the interesting cases going on when I was last there. Very, highly entertaining, I should say...
