Roppongi, a hip district in Tokyo, is known for its hopping nightlife, so this eponymous restaurant is a perfect fit for Livermore’s happening after-hours scene, serving sushi until midnight on the weekends. Justin Oh spent a good long while selling sushi-grade fish before finding partners to open Roppongi—so he knows his fresh hamachi. The sushi here, served ice cold on the outdoor deck, in the simple dining room, or at the marble bar, is king. The spicy tuna and salmon Livermore roll (with macadamia nuts) is a favorite from the menu’s dozens—and dozens—of rolls. The Korean bibimbap rice bowl, a staple from Oh’s home country, and generous bento boxes are a steal for those averse to lunch in the raw. Lunch and dinner daily.
