Despite the strength of the list below, I'd argue that longtime purveyors like Segovia Meats and the Polish varieties at Starsky's deserve a nod in this space as well. And that's not to mention Thomas Lavers' vegan sausages and Dolce Lucano in Woodbridge, which supplies customizable cured varieties to establishments across the city.
And coin is key. As is often the case, the best comes at a premium. Don't go to these places looking for spicy tuna rolls or sushi pizza. There's a whole whack of decent cheap options that satisfy those cravings. For a sushi splurge, prepare yourself, as any one of the following places has the potential to completely ruin you from what is currently your favourite sushi place...you've been warned.
With few exceptions, it's also nice to see this list reflect changing tides in favour of sustainable fishing practices and ocean friendly eating.
