MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Northeast hotspot Masu Sushi and Robata has been named one of the best places in America to get your sashimi and nigiri on.

Bon Appetit Magazine bestowed the honor in its debut of the BA Daily Top 10, where it lists and recognizes some of the best new restaurants in the country.

Masu made the list, thanks in big part to its visionary, Katsuyuki (Asan) Yamamoto. The bar’s horseshoe shape and colorful decor are also noted in the article.

Masu General Manager Brent Sokup said they were contacted by Bon Appetit to verify the restaurant’s info, but were merely told it was a possibility that they would make the final list.

When the list was released Tuesday, Sokup said they were thrilled.

“We were very excited, we were very pleased and we’ve been thrilled to have Asan. He’s kind of our homerun hitter, if you will,” he said.

The blog suggests ordering Masu’s Firecracker roll or sashimi offerings and gives shout-outs to their highly popular ramen and sustainable menu.

The announcement comes at a great time for the restaurant, which is in the midst of construction on their second sushi spot, inside Mall of America.

Sokup said depending on the construction schedule, they’re looking to open the new restaurant in late July. The Mall of America spot will be very similar to the northeast location, he said, with just a few minor changes to the menu and a slightly faster approach for service.
