Sushi Kashiba in Seattle
Chef Shiro Kashiba is credited with opening the first sushi bar in Seattle in the 1970s. Trained under Jiro Ono prior to moving to America, Kashiba operated two successful restaurants, was nominated twice for a James Beard Award, and served as executive chef for the Westin properties. He came out of retirement this year when he opened the much-hyped Sushi Kashiba in Pike Place Market. From the 14-seat counter, diners can watch the master at work, creating a couple dozen nigiri that range from sea bream and bluefin tuna to mackerel and scallops. Kashiba is also known for incorporating seafood (geoduck, squid, uni) from the Pacific Northwest.
