Suddenly omakase — a traditional chef's choice Japanese tasting menu featuring raw fish  — is almost as widely understood as California rolls are. The country's collective knowledge of all things sushi has never been greater, and — while Los Angeles has been saturated with high-end options for years — cities like New York and San Francisco have seen a recent uptick in super-expensive, omakase-encouraged restaurants over the past three years or so.  Never heard of omakase until now? Check out this video for a visual.

Granted, it's not all high-roller expense account meals in the world of sushi. You can eat inventive, coconut-studded sushi rolls for happy hour at Doraku in Miami Beach. Or slug wallet-friendly creations like the Firecracker — made with shrimp tempura, avocado, chili sauce, and spicy mayo — at Masu Sushi & Robata in Minneapolis. Below Eater editors across the country have singled out the best places for raw fish in their respective cities. Get involved.
