ADDRESS: 9 East St, Boston, MA 02111
CUISINE: Japanese/Sushi
FEATURES: Handicap Access, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly
DESCRIPTION
O Ya, from 2012 James Beard Award-winning chef-owner Tim Cushman, is ranked among the top sushi restaurants not just in the Boston area but also in the entire country.
From Open Table and the restaurant:
"Located in a 100-year-old fire station in Boston's historic Leather District, O Ya offers contemporary Japanese dining in a comfortable setting. The intimate 37-seat dining room consists of 10 tables and a 17-seat chef's counter, where guests can watch the chefs preparing the dishes. Chef-owner Tim Cushman offers an omakase, or chef's tasting menu, for $150 and an extensive a la carte menu of creative nigiri, sashimi, vegetable, wagyu beef, kurobuta pork and poulet rouge chicken dishes. O Ya also offers an extensive premium sake list. Average dining time is approximately two-three hours."

James Beard Foundation: Tim Cushman, Best Chef: Northeast winner, 2012


"The restaurant, plotted with excellence more than profit in mind, reflects extraordinary pride. Although it has just 37 seats, 17 of them at an L-shaped sushi counter, there are as many as five chefs in addition to Mr. Cushman working on a given night. They execute a menu with about 80 savory dishes, few of them simple, and just as many sauces and dressings a night."

- Frank Bruni, The New York Times, March 19, 2008

ADDITIONAL DETAILS
Beer, wine and sake available. Serving dinner Tue-Sat. Closed Sun-Mon.
