2009 Best Sushi, Affordable

Like laser eye surgery and brake repairs, raw fish is something we’re loath to cheap out on. Rather than risk gastric distress—or merely off-tasting nigiri—we get our budget-sushi fix at the Back Bay’s Douzo, where the ambiance is polished and the sashimi as glistening-fresh as it is at the astronomically pricey joints. Ample space at the bar means it’s a cinch to belly up for a quick lunch, while the scores of tables means there’s no silly reservation policy standing between you and your maki.
