Amazing sushi, but you need to ask the chef/waitstaff for recommendations and specials to get the standout stuff. I've had the omakase menus at Nobu and Morimoto, and Miso's food is just as good. Standout non-nigiri dishes include the tuna sandwich, the fried oysters, and the seafood soup.
Food: ExcellentService: ExcellentDecor: Very good
