  1. Sugarfish Brentwood
    8.6

    Sugarfish Brentwood

    11640 W San Vicente Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90049

    “Dude, this sushi isn’t even that incredible.” OK, spoiled LA friend, we get it. Your fish on rice is so much better than ours. I’m not sure what kind of gold studded toro our LA friends are used to eating on a regular basis, but where we come from the sushi at Sugarfish is about […]

  2. Ichimura at Brushstroke
    8.6

    Ichimura at Brushtroke

    30 Hudson St., Tribeca, NY 10013

    Ichimura at Brushstroke sounds like a pop-up restaurant in a Greenpoint art studio, or maybe one of those collaborations between a famous name and a clothing store, like Elmo for H&M (skinny jeans and Muppet fur!). It is neither of those things. Ichimura is a tiny, eight-seat omakase bar located within David Bouley’s Japanese restaurant […]

  3. Tanoshi
    8.5

    Tanoshi Sushi

    1372 York Ave., Upper East Side, NY 10021

    What’s that? You’ve never heard of Tanoshi? No sh*t. It’s on 73rd and York. I had no idea that there were people on this part of the island, let alone noteworthy restaurants. In my mind, this neighborhood is basically a hospital and a bunch of empty apartments that you see on Craigslist for $1400 a […]

  4. Sushi of Gari 78th
    8.5

    Sushi of Gari

    402 E. 78th St., Upper East Side, NY 10021

    Sushi of Gari is the best sushi on the Upper East Side. Hands down. It’s not even up for discussion. You know why Sushi Seki is so good? Because the guy who started it learned from Gari himself, Masatoshi “Gari” Sugio. As discussed in the review of Gari’s 46th St. location, it’s all about the […]

  5. nobu
    8.4

    Nobu

    105 Hudson St., Tribeca, NY 10013

    Some say Nobu is old news, but we say it’s still as good as Japanese food gets. Especially if someone else is paying.

  6. Sushi of Gari 46th
    8.4

    Sushi of Gari 46

    347 W. 46th St., Midtown, NY 10036

    Damn. We’ve been sleepin’ on Gari…hard. This is some of the finest fish in all of Manhattan. Their $50 Omakase is as visually stimulating as sushi can get. This isn’t just fish on top of rice – no, no. Each piece is prepared like its own entree – stacked, coated and finished with different ingredients. […]

  7. Nagao Sushi & Salad
    8.4

    Nagao Sushi & Salad

    13050 San Vicente Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90049

    No, we were not at Sushi Nozawa on the last day before it closed. Apparently that’s the new badge of honor that people in LA wear now when you bring up sushi restaurants in this town. “Oh you like that place? I guess it’s OK. Did I tell you that we waited six hours to […]

  8. Sushi Yasuda
    8.4

    Sushi Yasuda

    204 E. 43rd St., Midtown East, NY 10017

    There are three simple rules for having a mind-blowing eating experience at Sushi Yasuda: 1. Sit at the sushi counter. 2. Order the omakase. 3. Sit back and enjoy. If you want to complicate things and add a fourth rule, we’d recommend closing your eyes while you chew. You’ll look like an idiot, but you […]

  9. Sushi-Seki
    8.3

    Sushi Seki

    1143 1st Ave., Upper East Side, NY 10065

    Updated December 30th, 2013 We first discovered Sushi Seki in 2010 and reviewed it after several visits, most of which happened after midnight on random weekdays. We’ve always loved this spot for its late night hours, but the sushi is pretty damn spectacular no matter when you eat it. Today we bring you an updated […]

  10. 15 East
    8.3

    15 East

    15 E. 15th St., Union Square, NY 10003

    Bert and Ernie? Fergie and the weird looking dude from the Black Eyed Peas? That won’t work, Steinthal can’t run in heels. Sorry, just thinking of a few disguises for all the bank robberies we’re going to have to pull off to keep eating at 15 East. Maybe we’ll do the Hamburglar and Grimace. They’ll […]
