I like Mottsu on 285 Mott St. Unpretentious, yummy, nice soup.

Just went to Bond St. while I was in the city. It was pretty amazing food and a great ambience. I highly recommend getting the lychee desert they have... it was like the best thing I've ever tasted.

as far suschi in NY is concerned, NOBU is a bit out

the best place is now MEGU and if you check it on the net, it ll say:

"At the city's latest high-end Asian eatery, the menu is baffling, the portions
are small, the prices are astronomical, and the result is fantastic"

and I really do confirm

cheers!

definately check out Tsuki if you are down for a trip to the UES.

Mike san and Chris are an awesome team and their uni (sea urchin) is maybe the best in the city.

blue ribbon in bklyn is pretty good too.

There's this place in Chelsea called D'or Ahn. It's a Korean/French fusion. They have a selection of raw items on the menu. Check it out! The space looks amazing and the food is great. Essential.

Oh, and the best places for sushi are definitely at:

Sushi Yasuda
kuruma zushi
Sushi of Gari (east side)

Nothing else compares. Seriously.

SAPPORO EAST on 10th and first.

It's the only sushi joint you need in NYC.
Affordable, awesome food and more than 50 % of the clientel is japanese.
The vibe is hectic, loud and welcoming, and the tempura and spicy tuna rolls are fan-fucking-tastic!
The fact that they are constantly screaming orders in japanese, without it feeling "tourist-trappy", doesn't make things worse.

Nobu can go screw itself.
Unless you have bad confidence, and have to go where everyone else goes, pay way to much and still end up with a waiter smirking at you, after paying 25 bucks for a roll?...

Yes, Sapporo East is excellent. What's even better is that I live less than one block away! See lots of sneakerheads in there.

I've been quite lucky in that because of work (and a few personal outings), I've hit almost every reputable sushi spot by now. I've had omakase at Jewel Bako and I was disappointed. The selection was interesting but the quality wasn't that high.

The best I've been to are Kuruma-zushi and Sushi Yasuda. The place I never hear mentioned is Sushi-ma on 47th b/w 3rd and Lex. I was lucky enough to have an Omakase there when a "powerful" Japanese company took me out. It was one of the more memorable omakase experiences I've had in the city. When it was open, Honmura-An also had the best ike-hotate (they were Nantucket bay scallops) I've had.

Sapporo East is the best cheap sushi I've had in the city. Sushi-den is also decent for the price and they have aka-dashi miso w/ clams (for all you Nagoya folks out there).

The wait can be quite bad at tomoe. I was staying in an apt right across the street once, and went like 4 times a week during that time. I also went in there one time after a meal for a few pieces because I saw Daria walk in there.

From what I can remember Sushi of Gari had an incredible omakase. And I believe they've expanded locations. Must hit it up next week.

I had sushi at Jewel Bako on Tuesday, and it was pretty darn good. Especially the sea scallop with yuzu zest. However, I think yasuda is better. Masa is great too, but is a different story.

Dinner at Masa or a pair of Rpms? hmm... always a tough call...

Mottsu on Mott st. definitely suggest sitting @ the bar, and the chef might even slip you a double serving of seared yakitoro. bliss.

I didn't read this whole thread, but has anybody been to Sushi of Gari on the UES? I had omakase there and it was ridiculously good.

Definitely recommended, but I am not what you would call a Sushi conniseur.. also very expensive.

my wife introduced me to a great little spot called Rio & You. The main menu looks super generic like every other cookie cutter Japanese restaurant and it looks like a chinese restaurant from outside but they have a specials menu with fish flown in from Japan daily, free apps from the izakaya menu with every beer. The 35 dollar sushi special is better than some place's omakase.

momoya in chelsea on 21st and 7th


i work at a japanese fusion restaurant in soho, but i'm not sure i'd recommend the food since i haven't tried much of the menu (yet)
the interior's one of the best i've seen, though
not that that really makes a difference ;)

I'm excited to hit up these spots when I get to new york in a couple of months. great thread. thanks guys.

If you guys are in LA. Sushi Zo, Kiriko Sushi, and Tama Sushi are my recommendations. and if you are straight big ballin, Urasawa is the mecca of decadence.
