On the fringe of SoMa’s Design District, Omakase is busy crafting edible works of art all their own. Seats at the sushi destination have become a highly coveted commodity thanks in part to their Michelin star and a rave review from San Francisco Chronicle, so reservations are a must. Diners can choose from two prix fixe menus (with optional sake pairings) loaded with artfully prepared sashimi and nigiri at the discretion of the Tokyo-trained chefs. Fish and other ingredients are flown in from Japan to ensure an authentic and singular experience.
This Michelin-starred 14-seat omakase restaurant is known for its elevated Edomae-style sushi made with fish handpicked by experts and imported directly from Tokyo’s world-renowned Tsukiji Fish Market three times a week and its “classically Japanese” (read: refined and serene) ambiance. There are a few small tables, but the counter is where you want to sit so that you can interact with and watch the skills of chef Jackson Yu, a warm, engaging, and very talented master of his craft. Like the name suggests, there’s no set menu at Omakase; rather, diners pay $195 for around ten courses picked by the chef (with an optional $120 sake pairing).
How to book: Make reservations via Tock or order takeout online.
