Best sushi restaurant in South Florida 2017: Sushigo
He is known as Chef Joe, and he takes fish seriously. Sung Gook Joe, a sushi veteran who worked at Nobu in Miami Beach, presides over his 30-seat eatery with stern rigor. Don’t expect genial shouts of “irasshaimase” upon entering or goodbye waves and smiles upon leaving. The pristine and pricey cuts of fish, however, are a joy. Some are flown in from Japan, and some are blasted clean of microbes and parasites in his minus 80-degree medical-grade super freezer

I have found near perfection on a plate. It's in a Boca Raton strip mall with a tattoo parlor, pawn shop and Papa John's, and across from Mizner Park.
The special includes three slices of tuna, three slices of salmon, three slices of hamachi and three slices of wahoo, each about a half-inch thick. It comes with a small mound of freshly grated wasabi. It also has a California roll, which is pretty much superfluous, a way to fill the plate and stomachs with sushi rice wrapped around seaweed, avocado, cucumber and imitation crab.
But, oh, that fish.
