Ten Best Sushi Restaurants in Palm Beach County
8. Kontiki Wine and Raw Bar
Nicole Danna The sushi "bomb" at Kontiki in Wellington.
Despite its remote location in the heart of Wellington, this Asian tapas and sushi house is worth the trip if you're in the mood for some creative rolls served in a fun, funky atmosphere. Aside from the varied list of sushi, sashimi and specialty rolls, the menu offers one of our favorite finds. The Kontiki sushi bomb is a highlight here, a tempera-style roll stuffed with tuna, salmon, white fish, avocado, asparagus, scallion, sesame and masago that is deep-fried and topped with the house spicy bomb sauce. It comes in a lobster version, too, if you're feeling extra fancy.
Echo Palm Beach
This high-class sushi restaurant is part of The Breakers resort. It's a hip, modern space with a large outdoor seating area, but the place to be is the long, theater-style sushi bar where master chefs are on display as they put together rolls and plates with efficient precision. Here, it's all about attention to detail. Forget wood chopsticks. You'll get stainless steel for an upscale touch, instead -- a perfect match for the dishes coming from behind the bar. Ask your server for a side of specialty sauces, including a tart yuzu, savory garlic soy, sweet ponzu and a spicy kimchee sauce. You'll also find a rare treat: cobia. Commonly referred to as black salmon, the fish is served over sliced cucumbers with cilantro and garnished with yellow pea shoots. After your meal meander over to the nearby Dragonfly Lounge and choose from an innovative array of cocktails, sake, domestic and imported beers and impressive wine list.
