With seasoned sushi rice, 15 types of seafood, plus a side of miso soup and salad, the premium chirashi at The Brothers Sushi is the culinary equivalent of a 1953 Cadillac Eldorado, or this scene from Mamma Mia: 2 Here We Go Again. In other words, an instant classic. There’s a heavy emphasis on rich, fatty toro sashimi here — thick, marbled cuts of ahi that melt in your mouth. The bright-orange uni is firm, but bursts with umami, and glistening scallops contain both sweet meat and a delicate texture. Plus, the rice is separated out into its own container, so its heat won’t cook the raw fish, and is garnished with furikake, tsukemono pickles, plus a few slices of tamago. It’s a stand-out dish that we’d happily eat on its own, any day of the week.
