New York, NY 10003
Village Voice's Description
Sit at the sushi bar for the optimal experience, where you can watch chef Masato Shimizu create some of the best sushi in the city. The chef is friendly and knowledgeable, and might even ask you to grate some wasabi root for him. Everything is as it should be: the fish room temperature, the rice body temperature. Try Maine sea urchin, needlefish, or one of the many mackerels. Maki rolls are few, and austere.
