Pretty good for a sushi bar in Idaho, in my opinion. We came as a large group and ordered a ton of food. I thought it was very good, although a few of the rolls were missing something a little special. I was just wanting...More

Sushi on Second is "second-to-none" in Ketchum for creating a magical evening of food, friends and fun. Established in 1994, it is the Valley's oldest sushi restaurant, but don't let the age fool you. Head Sushi Chef John Rust is at the center of a talented crew of young sushi chefs that delight in creating dishes that are as appetizing to look at as they are to eat, like their famous "Who's Your Daddy" roll. See why Bon Appétit Magazine wrote "Sushi on Second, the best sushi I've had in years."The menu consists of global cuisine mixed with a healthy dose of Northwest experimentalism that creates a truly unique culinary experience. Chefs Ashley Weber & John are behind their nightly specials, which keep local diners coming back, often twice a week. Be sure to try the sushi, of course, but some of John and Ashley's current creative dishes include Grilled Alaskan Halibut with a chili lime glaze over curry rice pilaf and a cucumber yogurt salad, Hawaiian-style Baby Back Pork Ribs, Alaskan Sockeye Salmon with a citrus cream sauce over rice with avocado salad, Scallop Ceviche with wonton crisps, Idaho Kobe Beef Carpaccio, Seared Ahi Tuna and Avocado Tartare and SOS style Cioppino with Clams, Halibut Cheeks and Calamari, to name a few.The full wine, champagne, beer and sake bar is fitted with a flatscreen television to see the latest scores, snow and fishing reports. But whether you are sitting in one of the two private, screened tatami rooms or at the 20 seat sushi bar itself, all eyes in the restaurant invariably wind up on the sushi chefs. Knives a-blur, they chop and slice the finest seafood available, which is flown in fresh from locations such as Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji and Japan by their own seafood import company, Idaho Seafood. Come in and taste why Sushi on Second has been consistently voted Valley's best restaurant for sushi and seafood.
