While “can you give me the name of a good sushi restaurant in Milan?” may seem like a straightforward question, it’s a doozy. Milan is swarming with excellent Japanese restaurants all over the city, serving a varied clientele. These restaurants exploded on the scene, featuring both unusual fusion combinations and strictly traditional Japanese cuisine.
To avoid disappointing who you’re talking to, I would suggest asking a few questions about what matters to him/her for a 100% Flawless recommendation. Do you like trying new things, or are you a staunch traditionalist? Do you eat only in the city center, or do you want to discover new places in Milan? Do you follow trends, or do you take advantage of unique opportunities? Do you hate noisy places, or are you an aspiring socialite?
I’m not suggesting putting them through a personality test, but to merely get to know what his/her tastes are. Be discreet and slightly analytical (but not too much), and soon you’ll be able to match everyone with the perfect sushi place! Of course, to clearly define a person’s culinary expectations, you’ll need to have a solid grasp on the Japanese restaurant scene in Milan.
To make things easier, I’ve put together the following list of my favorite sushi restaurants. These places stand out for their quality ingredients, professional service, sophisticated settings, and their ability to tell a story with their dishes, providing an unforgettable experience.
