Nigiri at Lusca

Available at Lusca - PERMANENTLY CLOSED !
Great nigiri happens when grains of vinegar-kissed rice and pristine fresh fish meet in a moment of zen-like calm. At Lusca, chef/owner Nhan Le delivers those Zen moments daily — often with rarities such as sea robin, halfbeak, and threeline grunt sourced from Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market. Nowhere else in town will you find such dedication to the fresh and unusual. The live scallop, when available, epitomizes Le’s love of serving simple bites that channel the essence of the sea. $3-$10.
