– Welcome To The World of Sushi and Restaurants That Serve The Best…

Some time ago, I have discovered, in my adult life, to appreciate the taste (along with the sensory experience) of sushi. I recently viewed a 2011 documentary film, Jiro Dreams of Sushi directed by filmmaker David Gelb to delve deeper into the art of making sushi. This critically acclaimed film profiles 93 year old Jiro Ono considered to be the world’s greatest sushi chef and takes the viewer on the backstory of Ono’s journey of working in a restaurant as a young boy, moving to Tokyo to study as an apprentice, becoming a qualified sushi chef and opening up his own three Michelin starred restaurant, Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo where it may take months to a year to secure a reservation. The restaurant, steep in the tradition of Edo-style sushi, offers a how to dine at their establishment online for diners who require an education on cultural dining mores (including arriving on time, the amount of soy sauce to use, and frowning on taking photos). Sukiyabashi Jiro is on every foodies’ bucket list as this dining wonder has served many celebrities and dignitaries including a much notable visit by Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Former President Barack Obama.

This film led me to research which ones are considered to be the best sushi restaurants in the world that not only serve the highest quality fish, but exceptional service as the chef builds an intimate relationship with guests. According to several established food sites and critics, these sushi restaurants were ranked the best of the best:
