Quite possibly Dallas’ best sushi bar, Yutaka has been an Uptown staple since 2006. Chef-owner Yutaka Yamato oversees a mouthwatering list of fresh sushi and sashimi that changes with the seasons and with new shipments flown directly from Japan. His sushi rolls hew to traditional styles, with the emphasis on simplicity and good ingredients; none of the rolls here are Instagram-bait monstrosities with silly names and a dozen different fillings and toppings. By the way, that also means they travel well and make for perfect takeout; fatty salmon belly sashimi still looks and tastes glamorous in a paper carton.

Top pick: You could have a satisfying meal without ever straying from the day’s specials, especially fresh sushi and sashimi.

Fun fact: This remains the best restaurant in Uptown, and an especially good idea for date night or a modest celebration of a special occasion.
