The understated look of its first location, and the developing vision of its new spot on Fore Street both belie what takes place on the plates inside. Chef Masa Miyake foregoes the predictable (no tired miso soup, for example), for the bold and rare and exceptionally, beautifully prepared. Sockeye, salmon, glowing roe, yellowtail, wasabi, scallops, shrimp, prepared and plated and accompanied by additional flavors that come from outside the sushi tradition. Winning both the sushi and Asian restaurant categories this year, Miyake prepares lovely, delicious sushi dishes with exotic, unexpected components. Carry in your own bottle of sake, and put yourself in Miyake's capable hands.
