Naomi Sushi--Menlo Park

Despite its name, the differentiator at this restaurant isn't the sushi, but the great food that comes from the grill. They nailed the miso-glazed black cod (shown), which possessed a slightly crisp exterior and fall-apart flakiness. It was of the right sweetness, too. And, the grilled calamari? The delicious smoke flavor lived with me for days and it was delightfully tender without even a hint of the rubbery texture plaguing fried squid at sports bars everywhere.

Their sushi, however, was ordinary.
