Sebo takes exception to the Californian norm of privileging local ingredients by flying in 95% of its menu daily from three fish markets in Japan. For their steep prices, they guarantee quality and social responsibility: only seasonal, sustainably farmed fish are selected, ensuring a dynamic menu full of fresh sashimi. The basics—medium fatty tuna, salmon, yellowtail—are all fantastic, but be sure to let the Sebo team advise on the must-haves depending on the daily catch. On Sunday evenings, Sebo transforms into an informal gastropub, staying open an hour later and offering a weekly-changing Izakaya menu of cooked plates. Potential offerings of chicken and vegetable hotpots, cured and grilled mackerel, and marinated short ribs displaces the weekday’s more traditional edomae-style sushi bar. Located in Hayes Valley, the intimate, sophisticated, loft-style dining space is decorated with authentic Japanese screens and chic trapezoidal wooden tables—but the real catch is a spot at the 7-seat sushi bar facing the kitchen’s action. Don't miss their incredible selection of saki to complement perhaps the finest sushi in town.
