In addition to sushi made right at the counter by a chef who previously ran a sushi restaurant in Kyoto, the menu is richly varied, featuring ippinmono (small plates) such as Saba Nitsuke (broiled mackerel), Snake River Farms Top Sirloin Beef Tataki and the top-seller Butter Fish Misoyaki (grilled miso-marinated black cod), as well as eight Japanese-style salads, noodle dishes, and rice-based dishes. As a rule, meals here are entirely handmade. The dashi broth is lovingly prepared with ingredients such as kombu and katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna) from Japan, while the sauces and exclusive dressing, made with a generous helping of yuzu juice, also stand out thanks to the chefs’ exacting attention to detail. The homemade Japanese-style desserts, which are made by the owner’s wife and change on a weekly basis, are also popular.

While flavors like teriyaki might be familiar to the American customers who make up some 90 percent of the clientele, the owner also comes in every day to broaden customers’ horizons as to the many varieties of classic Japanese cuisine, such as mixing grated daikon radish and ginger into tentsuyu tempura sauce.

Additionally, SHO regularly invites sake brewers for tasting events, in which sake is paired with dishes such as battera (pressed mackerel sushi) and chawanmushi (savory egg custard). The restaurant also offers seasonal menus, including special New Year’s dishes, providing a broad survey of Japanese culinary culture. On average, SHO offers a lineup of around 40 different kinds of sake, all of which are either sourced directly from Japan, or from local breweries.
