Finally made it to Noda, last of the recent heavy hitters I have been eager to check out. Another excellent meal. The current high end sushi game in NYC is very strong!!!
Very interesting speakeasy vibe, highly recommend showing up early and start off with a cocktail at the bar.
Missing pic abalone from Chiba.
Mushroom soup, chilled uni chawan mushi, kurumotsu.
Bo-zushi prep @PorkyBelly
Scallop, Bonito - very fatty, nodoguru w matsutake- excellent!, wakame
Kinmedai, shiro ebi, buri, ikura
Tuna from Iwa. Akamai zuke, chu & o-toro, sumi-ika
Wild bafun uni, apparently the farmed uni typically has a more uniform color. Toro hand roll with wasabi shoots & sprouts, kuruma-ebi
Kamasu - excellent prep. Super soft texture
Kama-toro with quail egg. Holy smokes this was excellent.
Tamago w shiba-ebi and a touch of honey. Custard like texture
Sake lees (from Brooklyn Kura) ice cream. Terrific smooth, creamy consistency and flavor. @beefnoguy
Unfortunately no Toto
SGO, Noz & Noda are by far my top 3 sushi spots in the city at the moment. I need to give Amane a second chance soon.
