MICHELIN Guide

"Ju-ni" is Japanese for "twelve," which also happens to be the number of seats in this petite, omakase-only spot just off the busy Divisadero corridor. Its segmented, L-shaped sushi bar ensures personalized attention from the trio of chefs, often led by Chef/owner Geoffrey Lee. They're a young, lively crew, and they've designed this space with a crowd of similarly young, moneyed professionals in mind. Note the spotlights above the counter, placed for perfect Instagram snaps of dishes, and the thoroughly curated sake menu. A meal may begin with a tasting of seasonal vegetables-think tomatoes over edamame hummus-before proceeding to an array of nigiri, painstakingly sourced straight from Tokyo's own Tsukiji fish market and delicately draped over well-seasoned pillows of rice. Standouts include sakura masu with a salt-cured cherry blossom leaf, buttery Hokkaido scallops, and the signature ikura-cured in soy, sake and honey and finished with a grating of velvety frozen monkfish liver. Decadent supplements, like torched A5 Wagyu beef and luscious uni, can be added along the way. But the meal finishes with a surprisingly gentle sendoff: sweet, tender mochi dabbed with adzuki bean paste.
