“Casually elegant” and “expensively” priced, this bamboo-lined East Village Japanese slices a “flawless symphony” of “incredibly fresh fish” ; for best results, insiders “sit at the sushi bar” and go the omakase route, though no matter where you land, owners Jack and Grace Lamb “really take care of you.”

Elegant sushi restaurant. Tried Omekase sushi tasting menu - sushi melts in your mouth. Portions are small so plan on ordering several dishes if you want to leave satisfied. Great variety of sakes.

This place was fine. We ordered the mushroom and tartare appetizers and they were delicious and set the standard high. Then we ordered the chef's choice for the sashimi and the sushi and we were underwhelmed. I've been to enough sushi restaurants to know that when the server sets soy sauce at your table, your food won't be seasoned. The fish it self was good, but there was nothing special to the preparation. We won't be coming back. It's way too expensive for "just fine".

One of the better omakases I have been to. Request to sit at the bar. They have unique fishes. Worth it.
