I’ll admit it: I loved Nagomi Japanese Restaurant’s former incarnation, called Mr. Sushi, for many years.
When the time came to shutter the former and make way for some new folks in the kitchen and behind the front desk, some of the local sushi fans, including yours truly, had their fears. They were for naught.
Nagomi’s chef and owner Masahito Sano was executive chef at another favorite local spot, Japanese Kitchen, and also worked at everyone’s-favorite-closed-sushi-joint, Noda’s. Together he and his co-owner wife Kelly have upped the game with inventive dishes and traditional Japanese favorites hard to find around town.
