This restaurant in the Museum District showcases the talents of chef-owner Chris Kinjo by putting him and his team on stage. With the fish cases integrated into the sushi counter instead of sitting on top of it, diners can watch every knife cut that goes into preparing each dish of their meal. Of course, the nigiri is impeccably fresh, and Kinjo's omakase dinners remain among the city's most thrilling dining experiences.
MF's prepared dishes, including light, crispy shrimp tempura and a barely seared tuna tataki salad, deliver, too. While the cocktails are delicious, those dollars might be better directed towards another couple pieces of nigiri; after all, that's what makes MF stand out from Houston's other sushi spots.
