Best Japanese/Sushi Restaurant 

Mijori Japanese Restaurant

The best seat in the house at this eternally packed Grand Lake sushi joint is at the bar. Sure, you'd have more space at the tables, but the bar is where you can eye the speckled quail eggs, fish roe, and chunks of octopus in refrigerated cases as you decide on your order, or banter with the gregarious chefs over a beer or shot of sake. The place has a classic everybody-knows-your-name neighborhood feel and regulars can even score their own wooden sake cups. After downing a free bowl of miso soup, there are so many top picks that leaving room for dessert is a sizeable challenge. Mijori's cuts of sashimi are always succulent and pair perfectly with the generously-sized seaweed salad, laced with red chili flakes and achieving the perfect balance between sweetness and bite. For those gravitating towards something other than raw fish, the sushi roll specials — stuffed with cooked goodies such as fried soft-shell crab and shrimp tempura — are a welcome temptation.
