MICHELIN Guide

Wako blends right in with the sea of Asian restaurants on Clement Street, but don’t let its nondescript exterior fool you. Once inside, you will find a serene and spare dining room that is composed with beautiful, multi-hued wood surfaces and attended to by an exceedingly polite service staff. Fresh flowers add a bit of flourish and fun. It’s the kind of pristine culinary experience that connoisseurs and foodies crave. And since this kitchen boasts some of the best sushi in town, be sure to make reservations. The omakase (with a choice of two menus of varying length) may be the only option on offer, but rest assured as it's available throughout the restaurant. Nevertheless, a seat at the ubiquitous counter is likely to deliver a happier outcome. From the non-sushi items, diners may be presented with poached monkfish liver, a creamy potato croquette dolloped with salmon roe, or a salad of shaved apple and mizuna. The real knockouts though arrive on rice: squid with a touch of shiso and Meyer lemon zest; silky salmon with house-made yuzu kosho; custardy uni imported from Japan, wrapped in roasted seaweed; and to finish, a melt-in-your-mouth slice of gently seared A5 Wagyu beef. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
