i haven’t been to nyc since the bromakse boom so my other nyc spots are outdated, but i liked it better than masa, ichimura at brushstroke, nakazawa, 15 east, yasuda.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 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.

We could argue about when exactly it happened, but I don’t think there can be any doubt that New York is now the most important city for sushi outside Japan. This must have seemed obvious to Tadashi Yoshida when he gave up his acclaimed sushi-ya in Nagoya to start over in Manhattan.
