    1. I'd add Umi to that, but can't argue with Tamari or Little Tokyo.

      1. I really like Penn Ave Fish Co.

        1. I'll preface this by saying I'm a snob, but that's not an apology :D

          For traditional preparation - we're talking nigiri pieces (fish over rice) or a kaiseki style meal you can't beat Chaya in Squirrel Hill. Generous portions, traditional preparations, and ideal fish/rice ratio.

          UMI is fantastic stuff as well, very fresh, great accompaniments to the fish - but very expensive and very small.

          I'm not one for fusion rolls and such, but if I'm going to eat them I would make Tamari my choice, they also have good quality nigiri pieces.

          I would happily eat at little tokyo - but only if I couldn't make it to Chaya or Tamari.

            I'm also a fan of Chaya, for pretty much the reasons you've stated.
