Travel and Leisure has named Miyake to their list of the Best Sushi Restaurants in the US.
Lobster may come to mind first when you think of Maine. But at Miyake, an elegant restaurant in downtown Portland, chef and owner Masa Miyake serves some of the best sushi along the Atlantic. His menu focuses on local catches: there’s sweet Maine shrimp laced with a spicy mayo and avocado, mini sardines, and even sea urchin roe harvested just up the coast. And yes, there is lobster on the menu, but it’s probably prepared in ways you’ve never tasted.
Earlier this year Bon Appetit had named Miyake one of the 10 best new sushi restaurants in the country.
