Basho-Japanese sushi for Lunch

Basho Japanese Brasserie
1338 Boylston Street

Boston, Massachusetts 02215
(617) 262-1338



Basho, sister restaurant of Douzo, is located in Fenway. Personally, I'm a fan of the Douzo-Basho establishment for the fresh, creative sushi but it's not for you if you're on a budget. Prices can rocket sky-high if you're not careful, with specialty rolls etc at about $11-16 bucks a pop. Even with my buywithme voucher ($20 for $40 worth of food), our bill came up to over $60 for lunch. 
I enjoyed the miso cod and yellowtail the most.

Yellowtail Usuzukuri 
with yuzu sauce-the sake (?) gelee added a nice burst of freshness.
Miso Black Cod 
caramelized with sweet miso-fish was tender and grilled well.
Steamed Bun Sandwich  
with Kurobuta pork and pickled cucumber- I thought this was good but not great.
Basho Roll- fried snow crab, lettuce, shiitake, asparagus, pickles with jalapeno aioli wrapped with cucumber and soy paper--This was interesting and I've never had maki wrapped in soy paper until now. Chilli and crab's a tried and true combination.
Omakase Special-A really good value for lunch
