Miami's Ten Best Sushi Bars: Hunting for Fresh Fish

6. Bond Street
This sushi restaurant in the basement of the Townhouse Hotel isn't the most comfortable, but the sushi is always good and always fresh, so we forgive the place for its tiny stools and tables. Bond Street is a NYC import, so the menu follows the same format, including "Hot Eel Dice" topped with slivered almonds ($14), as well as more traditional rolls such as spicy tuna with chili-mayo ($14) and salmon-avocado ($9). You can get six pieces of "exotic" nigiri for $25, or order by the piece, but it adds up fast, so be careful and pace yourself (two per order, $8 to $24).

5. Matsuri
A previous "Best of Miami" winner, Matsuri, just west of Coral Gables, continues to be the whisper on every local's lips when it comes to fantastic sushi. Although it's in a strip mall, the clean and modern space has been turning out fresh cuts of fish for more than 20 years. Sushi by the piece starts at just $1.50 and varies based on market price for specialty items. The rainbow roll, covered in tuna, salmon, fluke, and shrimp, costs only $10, and basic rolls such as the Alaskan ($7) and Cali ($4) are better than those at other places because such care is taken with the rice preparation -- not too dry or too sticky. You won't find discolored avocado or soggy cucumber here either.

I can think of a billion other things that I'd rather eat than sushi that cost less, taste better and are actually cooked. Who buys food by the bite ?

Understand why Naoe is not on the list but anyone who has been there knows that Kevin delivers the freshest fish in town. Matsuri and Japanese Market are the only other contenders.

You're missing Little Lotus. Order the 8 Crazy Nights roll, and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Every time I think about that roll, I crave it.

And Yakko San's is amazing. On 163rd.

This list doesn't include Hiro's on 163rd street. Amazing sushi, great place.

The fact that Shibui isn't even mentioned is a travesty. Just because it won the "Best of" a bunch of times doesn't mean it has to be ignored.

This is is spot on. I'm assuming NAOE didn't make the cut due to their move to Brickell

There's some confusion...all of our "Best of Miami" top 10 lists specifically do not include the 2011 winners. We love Shibui, really we do.

 Exactly!
