Tucked away in a formerly notorious Key West watering hole is a serene little oasis with some of the best sashimi and sushi in town. Ambrosia, which originally occupied a small house on Packard Street, now is an ultra-modern space at the south end of Simonton Street, in the former Queen’s Table Bar and Restaurant , and is still serving some of the highest-quality fish I have ever tasted. You won’t get much conversation from the serious staff behind the sushi bar, but you will get succulent salmon, fatty tuna, spicy rolls and delicious warm eel with barbeque sauce (my preferred desert with sushi!). The space is large and moderately loud, but not distractingly so. The sake list offers a variety of warm and cold sakes of various qualities (and prices). This is easily the best sashimi and sushi you will find in Key West, and , in my experience, as good as anywhere in the country.
