This tiny, 12-seat sushi bar is set up so that every four guests get a personal chef to guide them through the ever-evolving 14-course $195 omakase experience. (Ju-ni means “twelve” in Japanese.) Almost all of the fish comes from the world-famous Toyosu Fish Market in Japan and is transformed by talented chefs into creative, unique, and exceptional dishes. As soon as you experience the first bite, you’ll understand why the restaurant has been awarded a Michelin star. Ju-Ni also has a heated outdoor parklet now, but the experience is the same, with one chef catering to four diners at a time.
How to book: Reservations can be made via Tock.
Ju-Ni means “twelve” in Japanese and not-at-all coincidentally, that’s precisely how many seats you’ll find in this one Michelin-starred omakase restaurant when the indoor dining area is open, which it is not at this exact moment. However, you can still dine outdoors in the heated parklet, which is set up just like a sushi bar with three seating areas and plexiglass partitions. That setup allows for every four guests to have a dedicated chef creating and guiding them through each of the 12 courses on the $147 menu that changes based on seasonality and fish availability from the Toyosu Market in Tokyo. Just be sure to put your reservation on your calendar—and maybe tattoo it on the back of your hand—because you can’t cancel or exchange your reservation for another night once it’s been made and paid for. Oh, and keep an eye out for the team’s new casual spot, the Handroll Project (self-explanatory), coming to the Mission sometime soon.
