I’ve long been a fan of EaterSF’s “38 Essential San Francisco Restaurants List,” because it’s updated regularly, it’s well chosen, and it’s pleasantly free of pretension or fuss.
The latest installment of the Eater 38, published just yesterday, contained a special surprise: Bernal’s own Ichi Sushi was just added to the list “for serving some of the best sushi in town, in a very uniquely San Francisco way.”
Here’s the blurbage:
ICHI SUSHI Although San Francisco isn’t a sushi town, per se, even the snobbiest raw fish fans adore Ichi, serving inventive, pristine sashimi, specialty rolls and more—all of it made with a very San Francisco, sustainable, seasonal focus.
As you may recall, Ichi also scored some mad props from Zagat recently, so this is just another feather to add to their samurai helmets. Also, it seems that Ichi’s glamorous expansion plan can’t happen a moment too soon. Big congrats to Chef Tim and Erin Archuleta, and everyone on Team Ichi. We knew you when…
