Profile

Sushi snobs are an imperious bunch, but mention the name Masatoshi "Gari" Sugio in their midst and they begin squealing like a bunch of boy-band groupies. At his small, uniquely Japanese establishment, he marinates raw fish in sake, spikes it with creamy tofu mayonnaise, and singes it with his trusty butane blowtorch. Such innovations may be common these days, but they're rarely equaled. When you've finished your sushi, indulge in a bowl of tempura-fried ice cream.
