Shiro's Sushi Restaurant Review: Fans of straightforward, traditional sushi flock to Shiro’s. If the space is rather plain, the mood is usually lively, and from the first bite, the food commands your undivided attention. Shiro Kashiba was a pioneer in the Seattle sushi scene, and though he isn't there anymore, the restaurant is left as his legacy. Seafood is local, whenever possible, and supremely fresh. Let the chefs create your meal, or perhaps choose the oysters, each sparingly topped with grated daikon, a drop of ponzu and a whisper of chili. There's also a salad with raw salmon, octopus, crab, seaweed and crunchy cucumbers dressed with ponzu and sesame seeds. If you prefer fish, consider the kasuzuke, a broiled, buttery-rich Alaskan black cod marinated in miso and saké. Wine, beer, cocktails and saké are available from the full bar.
