The service was great, as we were running late before a show and needed to rush a little bit! Our server made sure everything came out quickly, without feeling rushed, and we still made it to the theater with plenty of time to spare! The food was tasty, the restaurant was quiet, especially for a Sunday night. Overall, great experience More

Sushi | Upper West Side, Manhattan

I had an amazing experience here. I ordered the 16pc omakase which came with a sashimi starter and a miso soup. The quality of the fish was excellent, some of the best saba I've ever had. They cure their own ikura in sake and soy sauce and it was incredible. The price-quality ratio is unheard of, a similar meal at most other places would've cost between 160-200 where as it was only $120 with tip included. I will most definitely be back soon! More

Discover New York

When a city never sleeps, waking hours are spent in cafes, diners, bars and restaurants of every shape and size that give New York its unique flavor. Once famous for pizza by-the-slice (local loyalties run deep), black-and-white cookies, and old world, mahogany-paneled steakhouses—the dining rooms of titans of business and other famous folks—Manhattan is now estimated to have 24,000 restaurants, from midtown’s korean barbecue to fast casual vegan burgers. Pillowy pork buns? You got it. French rotisserie? That too. And, of course, there will always be the perfect bagel, preferably toasted dark with smoked salmon, cream cheese, tomato, onions, and capers.
