Denver's ten best sushi restaurants

10. Sushi Tora

This Boulder sushi joint set the standard for sushi in Boulder when it first swam onto the scene. Since then, the sunny spot just off the Pearl Street Mall has had its ups and downs, but after landing chef Ray Srisamer -- an alum of acclaimed Austin sushi spot Uchi -- Tora is definitely up. Srisamer brings in high quality fish and cuts it with exacting precision -- and while his menu includes old standbys and favorites, he's also incorporated some new, delightful twists.
We've compiled our favorite joints in Denver and its surrounding area that serve up raw fish. And we realized that, for a land-locked state, we've got quite a few sushi joints doing it right. Here are the ten best. (See the blog version of this slide show: "Denver's ten best sushi restaurants," on Cafe Society.)
