At Ken Oringer’s tiny sashimi bar, Uni, Chef Chris Gould brings a modern touch to classic Japanese sashimi dishes in an elegant, well-balanced menu. Although Gould continues the traditional sashimi style 2009 Boston Rising Star Chris Chung started at the Back Bay restaurant, his menu is no stranger to creative cross-cultural elements. Spanning the globe, a watermelon salad becomes both herbaceous and sweet when paired with Portuguese sardines, while a more traditional Japanese Ito Yori dish gets a European sidekick paired with floral elderflower.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Watermelon Salad: Portuguese Sardines, Borage Flowers, Maldon Salt-cured Baby Cucumbers, Pickled Watermelon Rind, Wasabi Rice Vinegar, Sugar, and Mustard Seeds
