Best Tuna Tartare in the East Bay or SF?
I've got a mean hankering for some tuna tartare. What's your favorite destination for this dish? East Bay spots preferred, but I'll take any recs to fill my craving.
If you don't mind, please include a link, and a general assessment of the cost vs. awesomeness factor - this is super helpful data.
Tuna tartare was one of Aqua's signature dishes back in the glory days of the 90s when Morrone and Mina were cooking. Michael Mina still has it on the menu as does Bourbon Steak. Pricey, of course, but a classic.
I used to love Limon's Aqua inspired tuna tartare before the fire. After they reopened, I think it (and the food in general) has gone downhill, but at least it's not that pricey.
Ozumo (SF and Oakland) has a tuna tartare appetizer called Dohyo that is quite good. Even without the blue-cheese flavored chips they used to have, it's one of my favorites among their signature dishes. (Hanabi is another one.

Mochica is Peruvian. They also own Piqueo's in Bernal Heights and La Costanera on the ocean south of Pacifica. Both recommended.
