Seattle’s first fully sustainable sushi bar, Mashiko dedicates much of its menu to “chef’s choice,” and dishes depend on factors like traceability, fish populations, fishing methods, and farming practices. This doesn’t mean the sushi is any less delicious, though. In fact, everyone is raving about chef Hajime’s expert treatment of fresh seafood and for his new twists on old favorites. 4725 California Ave. S.W., 935-4339
First runner-up: Shiro’s
Second runner-up: Momiji
Honorable mention: Japonesa, Moshi Moshi
