I kinda hate you right now.

Both for the meal you had and your apparently effortless expert photography. Kudos to all involved.

So insanely jealous of you right now!! I’ve been wanting to go ever since i heard he set up shop here! Everything looks amazing.

You said top three, what are your other two and how does yoshino compare to other nyc sushi spots?

my other top two are sushi sho and yoshizumi.

i haven’t been to nyc since the bromakse boom so my other nyc spots are outdated, but i liked it better than masa, ichimura at brushstroke, nakazawa, 15 east, yasuda. didn’t have time to make it to noz and noz 17 on this trip, have you been?

Ooh interesting! I’m guessing you like edomae style :slight_smile: of the ones you listed I’ve been to nakazawa, 15 East and yasuda (but takeout so doesnt count). I like naka better than 15 East and noz much more than all of them. Their rice is fantastic.

We got the takeout box from sushi sho while we were at Waikiki but unfortunately did not really like it… not sure if that was just the takeout or me not really vibing with their take on edomae style or both.
