Looking for San Diego’s most sophisticated Japanese craft sake selection and super fresh sushi? Then a visit to Saiko Sushi Coronado is a must to enjoy regional, single brewery sakes and delectable fare. Chef/owner Anthony Pascale and his partner Evan Bennett are the only Certified Sake Professionals in San Diego. They work together to curate a dynamic, meticulous sake menu grouped into four distinct categories:

•Sea-clean style sake
•Air-light & sophisticated
•Land-rustic & robust
•Nigori-unfiltered

Opt for a flight, glass, carafe or full bottle plus delight in the chance to learn from the educational food pairing suggestions.

On the edible side, seafood is brought in daily from the city’s premier supplier, Catalina Offshore. Choose from appetizers, salads, rolls and specials such as an exquisitely plated Snapper Sashimi with Ponzu Sauce. Saiko’s most popular roll, the Rey — a mouth watering combination of albacore, tempura shrimp, kani-kama, micro cilantro and apple-mustard vinaigrette — perfectly complements an earthy glass of Seven Spearsmen.

Finally, decor invites with sumptuous red walls, black tables, chic pendant lighting and a wood/stone sushi bar that give the place a relaxed modern feel. An adjacent breezy patio sports views of the San Diego Bay.
