sushi

Review: Starfish

Had a terrific dinner with proftlb and mumpish Saturday night at Starfish. Three of us opted for the omakase, while my husband went for the regular menu. I've only done omakase a couple of times, but I can say without a doubt that this was the best I've had thus far. The chef seemed to care deeply about what he was serving, and very kindly gave us an informative overview of each dish. Here are a few pictures. I apologize for the quality -- my cell phone camera doesn't handle dim light well at all. Click the thumbnails for a larger view.

I would definitely return to Starfish. In fact, it may be my new favorite sushi place in that price point. Next time, I might try the regular menu options -- David's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory roll (Spicy tuna roll topped with beef tataki, avocado, and special sauce) was a silky umami bomb - the bite I had was excellent.

Everything was outstanding. After writing this up and reliving the experience, I'm ready to return right now!
