Back in September of 2013, a kitchen fire shuttered MF Sushi for an indefinite amount of time while chef Chris Kinjo and his partner, brother Alex Kinjo, worked with contractors and the city to restore the popular restaurant to its former glory. In May, eight months after it closed, MF Sushi reopened with a new look but the same great menu. Upon MF Sushi's reopening, chef Kinjo reported that customers said they hadn't eaten sushi since the restaurant closed down — an assertion that might seem mad until you consider the quality of MF Sushi's food. Exotic fish is flown in from Japan for many of the chef's dishes that make up the 18-plus-course omakase dinners, and his agile fingers create some of the most interesting and top-notch platters of sushi and sashimi in town. Chris Kinjo is back, and he's better than ever.
