Nishino in Seattle Review May 13, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — lovemyfood @ 9:47 pm

Sushi is as much about the rice as it is about the fish and the rice in Nishino is worth talking about; it is comprised of separate grains that are sticky enough to hold their shape while you carry them from your plate to your mouth but as soon as you bite… they separate into individual grains – it is what sushi rice (and all the myths and truths surrounding it) is all about. The place itself is modern, not a typical Japanese restaurant, more of a nice & cozy bistro with table cloths and dim lighting, the service is prompt and attentive. The food, which is why you are actually reading this post, is innovative yet traditional, perfectly executed and beautiful. The seared foie gras with tuna and balsamic is sublime, an amazing combination which makes you wonder why no one else thought of it before, the fried sushi rice squares topped with salmon tartare have all the elements of a good dish – hot and cold, crunchy and soft, rich and tart. The sushi is also superb and fresh, the list of fish on the menu is complimented by an equal amount of daily specials. 

A truly great dinner!

Reservations recommended.
