Top Sushi Spots in Every State

  • Top Sushi Spots in Every State

    From preparation to presentation, sushi is a true art form. Fresh, light, and colorful; sushi has become one of America’s favorite outings, great for everything from an evening with friends to experiencing some of the country’s top culinary talents.

    But as is true with all art forms, making sushi is a highly skilled craft. A traditional sushi chef spends at least five years training as an apprentice before becoming a head chef. Perfecting everything from knife and cutting etiquette to the proper preparation of sushi rice takes years and years of practice, as shown in the highly popularized film, Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

    All over America folks are eating sushi - from upscale restaurants with white tablecloths to famed holes-in-the-wall with just a few seats at the bar - but in an industry where quality and authenticity trump all else, there is a wide range of options when choosing where to eat.

    To help pick out the top sushi spot in every state, we used Foursquare's massive library of restaurant rankings which incorporate user trends for check-ins, ratings, tips, photos, and more. 

    Wherever you reside or your travels may take you, these sushi spots all offer a unique culinary experience. Did your local favorite make the list?
