When Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer opened up the great Spanish restaurant Toro, it showed New York City that Boston has some strong culinary talent. Now with the recent Boston import O Ya, from Tim and Nancy Cushman, the Boston culinary magic continues. O Ya is a Japanese restaurant serving Omakase only. For $185 you get 18 courses, or for $245 you get 24 courses. It's not cheap, but what you get is unique, genius, and awesome bites. I stopped in their first month opened and had a truly magical experience.
It's beautifully presented (check out the awesome plates!), and you get bites you've never encountered before. From potato chip sushi topped with black truffle, to foie gras with balsamic chocolate, to fried Kumamoto oyster with squid ink bubbles, to a chive blossom omelet. Everything is truly #magical. If you are a sushi and omakase fan like me, check out O Ya. A magical culinary adventure awaits.
