Best Japanese Restaurant/Sushi 



"Keep it simple" is a mantra that is valued but often ignored. Not at Ginko, the 6-year-old Tremont eatery that has a monastic focus on raw fish. Here, almost all of the admittedly small subterranean space is dedicated to the sushi bar, where obsessively fresh fish is draped over lumps of steamed rice. If it's ramen, teriyaki, hibachi or sukiyaki that you're after, you best head elsewhere because Ginko swims against the current trend of lengthy menus. Diehard sushi fanatics travel distances long and short to belly up to this bar for the city's best tuna, yellowtail, uni, mackerel, eel and octopus, all of which is served up in a boldly designed setting.
