Best sushi in Fairfield County

This may be a bold statement but here is our pick of the best sushi restaurants in Fairfield County. In New York you have many choices for sushi restaurants but up in Fairfield County, ah, not so many. Last night some friends of ours suggested that we go to Koo in Ridgefield. The same town that we're looking for a home to buy. it's a charming, quant New England town and we're finding that it is a gold mine of great restaurnts. We ordered just short of a boat of sushi and a favorite of mine, the black cod, made famous at Nobu and an openly shared recipe.
The special sushi of the night was a wild Alaskan salmon that was the color of a tuna belly. Smooth like butter it melted in your mouth. In all honesty, I'm not a big fan of sushi. I get a little sad when I think of the ocean critters that gave up their lives for my meal. After a Saporo or two, my mind usually eases. The sushi bar had just three pieces of the Wild Alasan Salmon left so to make up for the dissappointment, they offered to bring us a group dessert of fruits and batter cake after our meal. The meal was incredible. There was talk of comparing it to New York's famous Yama, without the hour long wait outside. We have been told that Kazu in South Norwalk (SoNo) is also exceptional. We will let you know.
