Top 15 Sushi Bars in the World

What makes a good sushi experience? First, it’s all about the fish—the fresher the better! Secondly, a little creativity can go a long way. Luckily, more and more sushi restaurants around the world are taking freshness and creativity to delicious new levels.

Here are our top picks for the fifteen most impressive sushi bars around the world…

1. Urasawa, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

There is a reason why dinner for 2 at Urasawa in Los Angeles will set you back about $1,000 (with tip and tax)—it’s that darn good! This sushi bar offers limited room at 10 diners per sitting, and the dining experience is as much a culinary one as it is a theatrical event. Chef and owner, Hiroyuki Urasawa, might just choose the evening as the perfect time to unveil fresh tuna on a custom-carved ice pedestal!


2. Sukiyabashi Jiro, Tokyo, Japan

Owned and operated by Jiro Ono, 86-years young, and the only sushi chef in the world to earn 1-2-3 Michelin stars, Sukiyabashi Jiro is renowned as the “World’s Top Sushi Restaurant.” Grab a stool at the small, intimate sushi bar and watch Ono master his knife and serve you up the most phenomenal tasting treats!
