Modern Japanese cuisine & drinking house

Nomica is a fresh, contemporary take on Japanese cuisine, set in the vibrant Upper Market neighborhood of San Francisco. A sister to the highly awarded Sushi Ran in Sausalito, Nomica puts an urban twist on innovative Japanese food. Nomica’s name (Noe-Mission-Castro), a nod to our vibrant neighborhood, by happy coincidence, also means “drinking house” in Japanese. Our full bar features creative cocktails made with awamori, a traditional Okinawan spirit.
