Village Voice's Description
Fleeing a thronged beer festival at the seaport, we found Suteishi an oasis of color and quiet, a block or so north of the tourist throng. The place specializes in sushi, but with several jazzy side-specialties such as screaming hot rocks--the usual steak or mushrooms seared sizzling on a flat stone. Skip em in favor of the well-constructed rolls, made with fish whose freshness won't knock you out, but is perfectly fine nonetheless. Our fave was the mermaid roll, comprising seared yellowtail, scallions, and wasabi tobiko, the latter ingredient found in many of Suteshi's more-novel inventions. Salads are another strong point, which is unusual for a sushi bar, including one with heirloom tomatoes and another that features crab and yellow mustard.
Tips from foursquare
Sleek, stylish and fun. A downtown favorite for traditional sushi and sashimi. Try the "screaming hot rocks." You can get our free Downtown dining guide at http://www.downtownny.com/mapsguides/
Best sushi sit-down restaurant in the area. Get the Angelfish roll (mango + tuna) , Red Dragon roll or yellowtail + jalapeño appetizer. Trust us.
Crunchy East! Crunchy East!
The Sushi + Sashimi Duet is a lot of good fish for the money!
The lack of pretension here is a welcome change from other sushi joints, and the fresh fish, interesting roll combinations, and flavor packed sashimi “tastes” make it worth becoming a regular.
