With its simple blond-wooded interior and communal tables, Sushi Bayashi could fit as easily in a Tokyo suburb as it does in Trinity Groves. Which is exactly the idea that chef/owner Yuki Hirabayashi had when he fashioned the place after the community restaurants he use to frequent in his hometown Tokyo neighborhood of Shitamachi. The food is equally unfussy, as much of the wow factor is down to high-quality ingredients that haven't been messed around with too much. Hirabayashi has created a series of hit dishes that include sushi, sashimi and rolls, as well as traditional ramen and Japanese curries. A massive chalkboard, taking up the wall behind the sushi counter, displays the menu as well as specials, which cover everything from a weekly tomato ramen to Sagoshi (Spanish mackerel) flown in fresh from Japan. To drink, there's wine, an ample selection of saké and Japanese beer, including a lager that's made from sweet potato.
- Trinity Groves' Best Restaurants: "Sushi Bayashi offers sake for $6 from 5 to 7 p.m. everyday."
- Best for Trinity Groves' Best Restaurants Because: Sushi Bayashi offers high quality sushi for refreshingly low prices, plus it has an amazing sake selection.
