THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Miyake Restaurant Review

: Put yourself in chef Masa Miyake's hands with a three-, five-, or seven-course omakase meal. Miyake came to Portland from NYC for a better, simpler life for his family, and he's giving us what he himself came to find---that simple life in vibrant Japanese cuisine and fish fresh from local seas. You might get slices of Alaskan sockeye salmon atop a tangy lemon mayo sauce with fresh scallion and capers, then a crisply browned scallop with roe in a lightly sweet miso sauce. Wakame jako is a mix of greens with crisp wakame and smoky baby sardines and the pork belly is simply slices of meat and melting fat with a mist of ginger. Along with special sushi, like a rare barracuda, hot dishes might include kamo tataki, a grilled duck breast with yuzu citrus pepper, scallion truffle oil and duck sauce with a hit of spice. Be sure to get a premium saké from the shop next door (it's BYOB) and be prepared to wait---Miyake is small but mighty.
