After my last posting about Shiro's I've thought about sushi and honestly after eating it since 1947 when the 1st Sushi place opened in NYC. I can't think of anyplace that it hasn't been acceptable. I've been going to "Maneki" and "Arita" for years and never been disappointed. There are some places that are exceptional but personally unless it's a special occasion I don't feel compelled to go there. Even special places are evolving into neighborhoods like "Toyoda" in Lake City or "Kisaku" in Greenwood and others all over the seattle area. Some supermarkets have good Sushi like the Albacore with Jalapeano Sauce from Central Market in Shoreline. There are even quite a few Korean Restaurant's featuring Sushi as well. Often i've wondered is this going to become like Mexican Food and Pizza. I never thought Salsa would become more popular then Ketchup yet it's happened. It's no longer unusual to be served Sushi type appetizers at regular seafood places, certainly most so called fusion restaurant's. Was it that long ago that most people only ate raw seafood such as Oysters or Clams on the half shell?
