Best sushi I’ve had so far in NYC. Akasu vinegared rice, 100% Japanese imported fish, longer aging process, nice setting and great service. Only complaint is the standard $300+ tab common with NYC high end sushi. I miss LA pricing.
SGO LA is also 300+
Yeah but LA has lots of good sub $300 alternatives
Very generous! But then again, you’re paying for it.
Have you tried Noda?
Just tried it recently myself. While I’m certainly not astute in enough in sushi to pontificate about good, better, or best, it was definitely one of the best omakase experiences I’ve had.
Have not, its on the short list to try…were they serving any of the hikarimono (kohada, aji etc…)? For some reason they weren’t when it first opened. Do they make you get a drink at the bar before the meal begins?
Remaining list of places I’ve not checked out in the city:
- Shoji at 69 Leonard
Yes, we had some iwashi (does that count as hikari mono?). And yes, we had drinks at the bar. Did they “make” us? Not sure, but were certainly led there first …
Yup, iwashi falls into that category.
I wish I was more facile in sushi, as there’s so many great sushi spots to explore in Manhattan, and I essentially get to dine free when in NYC.
Please take me along with you…
Btw check out Noz next, probably the one I’m most excited about at the moment.
Walked right by Noz when we stopped by HARBS after an afternoon at the Guggenheim Museum.
Do you know if the Noda bar is available for just a drink, or if it’s just available to diners there? I want to try their Ichiro’s Malt collection. I have a bunch of sushi places lined up (Amane, Noz, SGO, and possibly Noda), but I’m oscillating between Noda and diversifying my itinerary a bit with Yamada Chikara…
