Coolidge Corner boasts several great sushi bars and Japanese restaurants, but one of the best spots in the area - on a busy Beacon Street corner, in fact - is Fugakyu. Open every night until 1:30am, they’re one of the last places serving so late, in the area or otherwise. But you don’t need a late night craving to make your way over here.
The brilliance of Fugakyu is the split between sections. Walking into a serene lobby with pools of live fish, you’re shuttled in one of two directions: the private bamboo booths of the dining room, or the elaborate moat-surrounded sushi bar. Service from ladies in kimonos is always with a smile, and while your food will be promptly served, you can relax here without feeling rushed, sometimes for hours. Their lengthy wine list and detailed sushi selections will make you feel at home, and in our case, sometimes we get so relaxed, we end up ordering what seems like half the menu!
They recently opened another location in Sudbury, so if you’re a ways out of town, looks like you’re in luck. In both locations, the specials change frequently. One thing that stays the same: their commitment to fresh fish. Amazing cake and ice cream desserts make this a dining destination.
