Tamago at Sushi Nakazawa

Sushi Nakazawa

I’m not sure if NY’s supposedly best sushi restaurant is actually the best. Everything is GREAT. Nakazawa, the man himself, has an incredible personality, fish is freshly sourced from our two coasts and Japan, and service is spot-on.  However, I still prefer Sushi Yasuda which certainly isn’t as hard of a reservation–you’ll need luck getting a reservation at Nakazawa now that they have four stars from the NY Times.

The whole sushi bar is seated at the same time, and omakase service mostly starts together.  If one person is very late, likely the whole service will be a little behind (that was me, whoops!).

Tomoe

When Yama on Irving goes completely downhill, the next best thing is making the walk to Tomoe and waiting on line.  I still find it a big strange that their rolls are filled with finely chop leftover fish instead of solid chunks, but it melts in your mouth.  I highly recommend the spicy scallop and maki combo!  If you love sashimi, their sashimi or sushi sashimi combos are a really great value!

Takahachi Again

Wow! I love Takahachi lunch specials so much. The food is fantastic and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.
