Best sushi in America: 2 spots in South Florida make the list

Once upon a time, sushi was hard to find. Now, you can find it everywhere — even your local grocery store. That fact makes looking for good, quality, almost too-beautiful-to-eat sushi really, really hard.

You know the kind that you can't stand to finish because you don't want the goodness to end?

And with so many options to choose from, and honestly, probably not a lot of money to waste on a bad experience, Thrillist is trying to alleviate some of the stress that comes from picking a sushi spot with its list of Best Sushi Restaurants in America.

A ton of transcendent sushi options in New York and California are listed but also some in our neck of the woods: Thanks, Miami. Two to be exact. And keep scrolling for of Reader’s Choice Poll for sushi in Palm Beach County.

Toni's Sushi Bar ($$$) is the OG of sushi spots in Miami. Their classic combinations are addicting and have been around for 30 years. Expect over-the-top orders like whole-tail lobster tempura ($24). Lots of reviewers say it's not as expensive as it should be based on consistency, service and quality of food.

Dashi ($$$) is located at the River Yacht Club in the Brickell area. It has been closed since taking extreme damage after Hurricane Irma, but according to their Facebook page, they plan to reopen. Why wouldn’t they reopen better than when they closed, right? Keep your eye on updates. When you go, expect Instagram-worthy presentations of sashimi and the delicious smoked trout sushi.

In "This Is Just To Say," the poet William Carlos Williams wrote gently, beautifully: I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold.

There's something to be learned from even the simplest recipes, and this bowl proves the point. Radicchio's bitter edge mellows once this vivid chicory spends seconds in a hot pan. That same pan, graced with a little olive oil, can then immediately coax firm grape tomatoes into almost-bursting beauties. Ziti tends to get baked into cheesy casseroles...
