It's always interesting to see the poll winners revealed.
But I wonder if there is a mistake here, or a mix-up with the parallel poll by the Palo Alto Weekly:
"Best Sushi/Japanese" text here online refers to one restaurant, then lists two locations of Sushi Tomo, both in Palo Alto. Sushi Tomo? I don't recall even seeing that restaurant on the MV Voice poll, and unlike Chef Chu's (right at the MV border), one Sushi Tomo location is in downtown PA, miles from MV; the other is on El Camino Way, off ECR beyond Charleston.
In contrast, Sushi _Tomi_ is a popular and widely respected restaurant in downtown Mountain View with a very similar name. I believe it has won the Best-of_MV poll in years past.
@Max: Thanks for your observation, which triggered an internal fact-finding mission. It turns out you are right. The list of winners provided to the newsroom had Sushi Tomo in Palo Alto as the winner, but after some digging, it turns out that a typo is to blame and Sushitomi is the real winner, pulling down the most votes for Best Sushi/Japanese.
The corrected write up for Sushitomi (sometimes written as Sushi Tomi) is:
A champion every year since 2007, Sushitomi clearly has a lot of fans in Mountain View. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant serves sushi, of course, but also tempura, teriyaki, donburi rice bowls, noodle soups and grilled appetizers.
