With a straightforward storefront and clean décor, this simple restaurant is easily overlooked, but that's a mistake. The room is energetic, with sturdy wooden tables and a small sushi bar toward the back, but it's the food that makes Kotobuki stand out. With each dish as strong as the next, kitchen plates shine just as brightly as fresh sushi rolls and sashimi pieces. Appetizers such as the sautéed gyoza served with a delicately spicy dipping sauce and flame-seared beef sashimi are a great beginning, each flavorful but light. From the sushi bar, the creative “K-Mac slider,” packed with tuna, rice, and avocado combines crunchy and soft textures. Friendly waitstaff are eager to help if you find the menu overwhelming.Recommended Dishes
Gyoza (sautéed), $6.50; Beef sashimi, $11.50; K-mac slider, $9.
