Chefs Michael Black and Daniel Dunham contributed to the Hayes Valley revival by opening this now-acclaimed sushi restaurant in 2006. Formerly featured on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, Sebo is housed in a small, stylish space with Japanese screens, polished wooden tables, and a six-seat sushi bar. The chefs display a clear commitment to Japanese ingredients, importing fish daily from three Japanese markets and seasoning traditional koshihikari rice with sake-based yusen-su vinegar. In addition to pure, simple sushi made with seasonal seafood, such as medai (butterfish) and uni (sea urchin), Sebo also serves small plates and an omakase (chef’s tasting) menu.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
