Grab a pair of seats at a table underneath the wooden screens fashioned in Hayes Valley before turning to the menu, which prioritizes using local fish over importing from afar. Along with your usual sushi favorites, they’ve got “Tasting Spoon” options like snow crab with cucumber, plus special rolls like the Hey Girl with tempura shrimp, tuna, avocado, spicy mayo and Unagi sauce.
Pair all of the above with a beer like Echigo from the hometown of one of the owners. Or something from the curated, constantly rotating sake list.
Or both since everyone’s working so selflessly for your enjoyment.
