Fish and Your Health

Fish & Your Health

We are passionate about the quality of the food we serve. In fact, we see it as our top priority. We hope your palate agrees.

The quality issues are quite complex, and around them swirls much debate, disagreement, conflicting claims, and confusion. Striking a balance between these priorities, while serving food that will delight our guests’ palates and honor tradition is, at best, complicated.

While we neither claim to have all the answers nor to have struck the perfect balance of these competing concerns, we are committed to learning as much as we can about each issue, sharing our findings with our guests, and making decisions that best address these sometimes conflicting priorities

Other key priorities related to our food are:

Sushi and Food Safety

for our guests

Food-borne illnesses, mercury consumption, and lab tests.
