In a lofty-yet-intimate, brick-walled space centered around the sushi bar, expect traditional-yet-experimental Japanese tasting menus and sushi at venerable O Ya in the Waterfront area. The extensive menu features inspired sashimi and nigiri alongside dishes like chilled squid ink soba noodles with torched ika and uni, grilled tea-brined quail or fried kumamoto oysters. Splurge for the pricey but one-of-a-kind chef’s omakase menu, including decadent bites like seared foie gras drizzled with miso and preserved meyer lemon. Pair tasting menus or a la carte offerings with top-notch sake selections or international wines.
