Massachusetts Sushi Restaurant Named One Of The Best In America
A recent report by IBIS World detailed that there are 19,742 sushi restaurant businesses in the United States. There are roughly 7,000 more sushi establishments in 2023 than there were 10 years ago. That makes it even more impressive that one of them from Massachusetts has been named one of the best sushi restaurants in the country by Time Out.
Sushi has become so popular that many platforms are publishing reports on the overall sushi industry in America. USA Today recently detailed that 5 million Americans eat this cuisine at least once a month. Furthermore, “Google Trends data shows it’s twice as popular as it was five years ago and more than three times as popular as it was a decade ago,” they state.
Sushi also has the flexibility to satisfy an appetizer portion, serve as a full meal, or offer an array of options for hors d’oeuvres. When searching for the best sushi, “fresh” is always a priority. In addition, seeing the chef hand-roll your pieces only enhances the overall experience.
So where do you find this sushi restaurant in Massachusetts that was named one of the best?
Boston – O Ya
Located at 9 East Street, O Ya is only open five days per week, which makes it even more in demand. The restaurant is high-end and even includes a Sake Sommelier onsite. This enabled O Ya to also offer beverage pairings with their prepared meals.
You may have trouble locating the menu online. That is because as their website explains, “O Ya offers a nightly omakase dinner, a chef’s-choice menu of 20 courses featuring a variety of unique nigiri, sashimi, and cooked dishes.” They also offer vegetarian or vegan options, but only with 48-hour notice.
Finally, Time Out describes the O Ya experience as one that requires your time and proper attention, claiming each dish looks as fantastic as it tastes. “The sushi and omakase menu is a marvel of both flavor and presentation, with every morsel—from the foie gras nigiri to the bluefin tuna and smoked salmon sashimi—a delectable work of art,” they state.
