NYC: Modern Sushi and Sake Dinner

Tim Cushman and Sake Sommelier Nancy Cushman of O Ya Boston

It has been a whirlwind year for sushi superstar O Ya, which has reeled in accolade after accolade. Named to the top spot on Frank Bruni’s list of “Ten Restaurants that Count,” O Ya dazzles diners with, as Bruni writes, “intricate, stunningly creative dishes grounded in, but not restrained by, Japanese tradition.”
