Boston has seen an influx in Japanese restaurants many that offer raw fish that meets even the highest standards; those that are casual, some that are among the fanciest restaurants in all of Boston, and others that skip the sushi in favor of offering a different take on Japanese. All ranging in price, varying in style but all sharing the common thread of serving the best Japanese to be found in Boston.
If you're craving an upscale experience but really want some of the best sushi you can find you'll find that the Eliot Hotel's hot spot Uni fits the bill. Helmed by famed chef, Ken Oringer. Not only does Uni do sushi right, it was one of the first to lead the charge in late night noodle bowls, offering a steal for a bowl of steaming Ramen.
While Uni is one of the most upscale spots, Yakitori Zai takes a pass on serving sushi in favor of other another trend- skewered grilled meats and bowls of Ramen.
Of course there are also those who have proven themselves to be contenders on all fronts over time. Fugakyu is a Brookline institution that has more than its fair share of regulars who have been flocking their since they opened many years ago to enjoy their sensational sushi, hot pots and Japanese menu items in a setting that transports you to Japan.
One thing is certain, whatever your Japanese craving may be 10best has found a spot where you can fulfill it
