You don’t expect to find one of the Bay Area’s best sushi restaurants sharing an office plaza with a state adoptions office, its back patio overlooking a golf course putting green.

A big selling point is the presence of Stuart Morris, one of a mere handful of Kikisake-shi (sake master sommeliers) in America. “Sit at the counter and order the omakase with Stu’s sake pairings,” advises Mahle.
