Best Sushi

Nanami Cafe

907 S. Ann St., (410) 327-9400,

The sushi chefs at Nanami Cafe earn their reputations as roll-meisters extraordinaire by applying exemplary creativity to the marriage of rice and fresh fish, but it’s the freshness of that fish—the make-or-break factor in the sushi business—that wins. And they whip up some great sauces to dress up their masterpieces with distinctive flavors. The tuna carpaccio, resting on a bed of shredded radicchio and drizzled with a light cream sauce, is melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and the crispy roll, which comes topped with shrimp tempura and a peppery sauce, is a standby on every visit. Sitting at the sushi bar, ordering a la carte, can sometimes gain you special standing as a taster of the chef’s latest stab at something new, but sitting outside at one of Nanami’s tables on Ann Street Wharf, overlooking the harbor at sunset, is perhaps one of the greatest culinary joys in town.
