I stopped by after a day of exploring the Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site, and I was blown away by the quality of both the food and service.

I tried several of the sushi rolls over the evening. I decided to branch out from my usual favorites and try the Nigiri Sushi, a type of sushi with the fish or toppings molded over the top of the sushi rice rather than rolled or wrapped in nori.

My favorite was the surf clam and, surprisingly, the octopus! I appreciated the friendly staff that encouraged me to try something new.

  1. The best sushi place in St. Louis hands down is Indo in tower grove. Sit at the sushi bar and you’ll have an amazing dinner. I had Japanese and Santa barbara uni. My favorite dish is the Isaan Hamachi. It’s expensive but totally worth it.
