When you want to have a very small group dinner, or the chance for a one-on-one with someone you usually see as a small avatar on your computer, go to Kabuto. Located in Chinatown, this sushi spot has three omakase options, the least expensive of which is $48 and includes a small sake drink, an appetizer, 10 pieces of nigiri, a handroll, and dessert, and is always enough food to fill us up. You’ll be able to hold a full conversation in the quiet, small space, though odds are you’re going to get distracted every time a piece of sushi is placed in front of you.
