Sushi-Teq | Waterfront Boston, MA

couple of my friends from college jus recently moved to boston and we went out last night for a small reunion. my friend picked sushi-teq. ive also been wanting to try this place out since chef Toru Oga serves there as a chef consultant. im a big fan of his restaurant Oga’s Japanese Cuisine in Natick.

Sushi-Teq is a small sushi/tequila bar located at the lobby level of InterContinental hotel in the Financial District/waterfront.

although food at sushi-teq was not bad, it is not “destination-worthy” to make the trip here just to eat at sushi-teq (not to mention parking is always real pain in the butt). it’s VERY over-priced for what it is. fusion; hard to tell the freshness of the fish because even their nigiris had some kinda dressing on it, but i guess it’s relatively fresh? Toru Oga’s Oga’s Japanese Cuisine in Natick is a lot better than sushi teq although i do see a lot similarities. i dont recommend coming to this place unless you are already nearby and really really craving sushi and tequila/drinks at the same time. if you dont mind blowing a few benjamins, o ya is walking distance and serves mind blowing sushi.
