“Sushi with a young, fresh appeal” – The Boston Globe
” Malts and cheeseburgers had a long run as the preferred food of the young. That’s so over. All you have to do is walk into Osushi to see the generational new wave. Tucked into a nook between the Westin Hotel and the Copley Place mall, this tiny place brims with youth. This isn’t your parents’ malt shop. Instead, it’s definitely a gathering place of young and cool, and toro (tuna belly) and godzilla maki, the successor to the burger of yore.
Obviously, owners Timothy Panagopoulos and Kenichi Iwoaka know their audience. The fish is fresh. The sushi is adroitly made so that the fish sits securely on the vinegared rice and doesn’t crumble apart when grasped with chopsticks. The maki rolls are pretty and the flavors distinct…The toro is almost pearly pink with a texture so soft it’s almost like foie gras on the tongue. Hamachi is fine and firm, and even salmon, the warhorse of seafood on the American table, has a lovely fresh taste. Saba, with its forward flavor and slightly oily texture, is a great accent point with other milder combinations… Osushi hits the right notes in mood and menu. “

“Jet-setters dine in style at the city’s coolest sushi spot” – Citysearch
“Osushi’s single dining room, with its frenetic street views and minimalist black and red decor, attracts Copley Westin tourists and sushi-loving movers and shakers. High-backed booths are perfect for couples looking to loosen up via the sake train (there’s an excellent list, including a delicate, pear-infused variety). Harried hotel guests and solo diners can saddle up to the tiny sushi bar, where expert sushi masters dice and roll the night away.
The simple menu is easy for sushi newcomers to navigate, while offering several intricate delicacies (tuna belly) that keep sushi snobs satisfied. Prices are reasonable, considering the excellent quality of the ingredients.”
