No Relation

Secluded at the end of a back hallway inside Shore Leave, No Relation is a nine-seat, omakase-style sushi restaurant serving freshly-prepared, globally sourced fish. Owned and operated by Traveler Street Hospitality, it is the only restaurant in Boston dedicated exclusively to this type of traditional Japanese cuisine. The ‘restaurant within a restaurant’ operates autonomously from the tiki bar/restaurant, offering a calmer, intimate dining experience than its counterpart. Pared down materials, such as light wood walls, a white, Japanese cypress sushi counter, and hand-painted tiles orient focus to the relationship between guest and chef as multi-course meals are prepared and served. Commissioned art by artist Mark Grundig includes a painted, magnetic map of the world above the sushi bar used to indicate fish sourcing and a vibrant interpretation of Japanese cherry blossoms that acts as an artful floor treatment.
