Ichi Kazatos bare-bones sushi restaurant keeps astonishing people with just how good and generous the chef is. A two-item lunch combo may fill up your table, and he slices his sashimi so thick youre shocked it still melts in your mouth. He may not offer dozens of varieties of rare fish, but everything, from the fat Americanized spider rolls to the ultra-classic chirashi (bowl of sashimi over sushi rice), is gorgeous. Low prices let you splurge on the seventy-plus sakes in his coolers.
