Fodor's Expert Review FuGaKyu

$$ Brookline Japanese

The name in Japanese means "house of elegance" and the gracious and efficient service hits the mark at this flagship location, along with the interior's tatami mats, rice-paper partitions, and wooden ships circling a moat around the sushi bar. The extensive menu is both elegant and novel, with thick slabs of superfresh sashimi, inventive maki rolls, and plenty of cooked items, like panko-crusted pork cutlet and chicken teriyaki for those not into seafood or raw fish. Can't decide what to order? Try the omakase, a six-course dinner composed of what's freshest that day ($90). Bento boxes are available at lunch only.
