Sushi Nakazawa
High-end Japanese dining
Sushi · West Village · $$$$
The Zagat Review
The “ultimate showstopper” from “sushi master” Daisuke Nakazawa, this “extraordinary” West Village Japanese specializes in “breathtaking” omakase meals served like “a well-oiled machine” at the bar and in a “serene” dining room; scoring reservations remains a “difficult task” and the cost is “off the charts” , but an attached lounge should help on both fronts.

Phenomenal skill in crafting the art of sushi making. It is important to note that this is not a place to satiate hunger. However, I found myself content in restraint. The sushi is amazing. We were told how to eat, not to add sauce, and do it in one bite. It was a pleasant journey of tasting flavors and textures. Squid was creamy. The Toro melted in my mouth. The uni was remarkably fresh. Great experience. Price is expensive. However, it's not a dinner. It is an experience.

Best sushi in NYC? Possibly. Definitely my favorite though. I've been here twice and it exceeded my expectations twice. The staff and chefs are very attentive, paying attention to details like whether a customer is left-handed (they will place the sushi at a different angle) or whether someone is about to get up (someone will pull your chair out). The food is amazing, but that's no surprise considering the price and the pedigree. The chefs (at least when you are at the bar) are fun to chat with and a delight to watch. Do yourself a favor and try the omakase at the bar. The food might be the same at a table in the back, but the experience is not.

After reading all the reviews I was worried the hype would be bigger than the reality of the experience. No need to worry, this meal was outstanding! The rice is easily the best this sushi addict has ever tasted. And each piece of fish is indescribably delicious with so many levels of flavor. If you love true jJapanese sushi this is an absolute must go.
