Collingswood | Sushi | Entrées: $21-$30
Last Year’s Ranking: 38

It’s not a slick atmosphere that makes this South Jersey sushi spot stand out—the hurried service and ’70s-era wood paneling can’t compare to the region’s newer sushi sellers. But there’s a reason why, after 35 years, people are stilled lined up at the door, and it’s because of Sagami’s ­never-miss-the-mark Japanese standards. Starters like tempura are impossibly light, and dumplings are homemade, while classics like teriyaki are authentic enough to put other, corner-cutting Japanese restaurants to shame. Sushi is truly the hallmark here. Again, nothing is fussy—just excellent cuts of fresh fish and simple combinations executed with precision. Order: Round out your sushi meal with a sampling of starters.37 West Crescent Boulevard, ­Collingswood, 856-854-9773.
