Warm and sweet as the inside of a yam, Kisaku offers the deep skill of sushi craftsman Ryuichi Nakano along with the sort of neighborhood hospitality that welcomes toddlers to the sushi bar. With shy grace Nakano-san presents an unusual diversity of seasonal delicacies—cod sperm sacs, green sea urchin—along with more usual suspects, then undercharges for them. It’s a genuine treat to sit at the bar to enjoy Nakano-san’s selection in the form of chef’s choice omakase (he tweets his daily fresh sheet @kisakusushi), and nonsushiphiles should order the mackerel in syrupy miso sauce, a revelation. Parking’s a beast in this part of Tangletown, so arrive duly warned.
