Without a doubt, Sushi Ran in Sausalito is the best sushi restaurant in Marin. Lunching there today, we enjoyed the absolute freshest fish, shrimp to die for, crunchy, tangy seaweed salad, and perfect miso soup (not overly salty, as one finds in so many Japanese restaurants). They also offer Obento box lunches.
This elegant restaurant, winner of multiple national and international awards, and rated one of the top five Bay Area restaurants by Zagat, sits on Caledonia Street right next to the Marin Theater, and occupies two storefronts, separated by a courtyard. On the left is the section with the sushi bar, and on the right is the sit-down only restaurant.
Dinner, the menu expands to a wide variety of seasonal specialties, in a fusion of Japanese and Pacific cuisine, with fresh local or jetted-in fish from Toyko, and a small, but excellent, variety of meat and poultry dishes.
Reservations are recommended for dinner, but you don’t usually have to wait too long at lunch.
