Austin
1. Osome
North Austin
$$$$

There is no stopping Austinites from taking advantage of an incredible omakase dinner—not even the threat of new COVID variants, because Osome is bringing their formal sushi prix-fixe to your house. Chef John Gocong draws on his days with Hai and Nobu to prepare seasonality and globally sourced fish right to your (dining room) table. Expect a delightful private journey of crudos, nigiri, and yakitori, complete with optional sake and caviar upgrades.

5. DK Sushi
Brentwood
$$$$

If you’re looking for sushi in a Texas house party-type atmosphere, DK Sushi has your number. It specializes in sushi and South Korean fare, so while there are classic Japanese items on the menu, expect a twist on the rest. The rolls are distinctly American, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you like the sound of the Texas Roll (salmon, tuna, eel, white fish, avocado, shrimp tempura) and Mexican Roll (shrimp tempura, smoked salmon, avocado, spicy chili sauce). Look out for DK, the owner, who’s there frequently performing cheeky stand-up, karaoke, and encouraging patrons to take sake bombs with him.
