#2

I’m particularly excited because my cousin’s cousin is part of the Uchu/Bar Uchu/Ichimura team. The entire team there is so thrilled to be able to accomplish this after opening in late 2017.


#3

Nice! On my list of places to check out.


#4

Any ‘cheap eats’?


#5

Not surprised, I had an excellent dinner back in January


#6

Uncle Boon, Jeju Noodle, Cafe China


#7

Thanks sincerely.


#8

A little surprised that Shoji didn’t get any stars. Certainly in the same league as all the other sushi new-comers and arguably better.


#9

Shoji’s chef was hired permanently only in June, which was probably past Michelin’s cutoff for this year’s guide.


#10

Not necessarily better than all the newcomers however certainly much better than yasuda, inoue, satsuki and worthy of a * by NYC rating standards.


#11

good point


#12

Yes, “best” is a wrong choice of word without qualification. I would arugue that Shoji’s product sourcing is among the best in NY. The kaiseki/kappo influence of the courses preceding the nigiri almost steals the show, and makes this a place I try to return to frequently.


#13

Not sure if this is right for here, but is sushi generally trendy or just with the FTC crowd.


#14

To me, it’s just something I eat regularly because I like it. Poke is trendy (in Manhattan, not in Hawaii). Sushi is a longtime component of the culinary landscape.


#15

I’ve never had the “good stuff.” Isn’t it really expensive? Ah well this is OT. But thanks.


#16

I’m not a sushi high roller, although I’d like to (have enough money to) be. I can manage - upper intermediate? - like 15 East, and Kanoyama, and Sushi Dojo.


#17

In the US, Michelin mostly gives two or three stars only to French, French-influenced, and Japanese restaurants.


#18

How interesting. Thanks for that, r.
