From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Chef-owner Leonardo Jun Sakamoto reigns from the central sushi bar in this elegant but informal restaurant, one of Brazil’s best raw-fish spots. The <em>omakase</em> menu offers a thrilling mix of Japanese, French and Brazilian–inspired sushi preparations.

We loved: Tuna tartare with foie gras; oysters with ponzu sauce.
