Sushi Yasuda
Location: 204 E 43rd St, New York, NY 10017
Phone: 212-972-1001
Neighborhood: Mid-town East
Cuisine: Japanese & Sushi

Perhaps the most exclusive Sushi restaurant in Manhattan. Sushi Yasuda is a labor of love between the founders—Naomichi Yasuda, Shige Akimoto and Scott Rosenberg—who passionately believe that this remarkable food in this unique environment must be experienced and shared. This is a sushi purist's paradise, and no two meals are ever the same

Because of the limited seating and the incredibly dedicated following of loyal customers and curious first timers, do not be surprised about the difficulty of getting a coveted reservation.

Beautiful sushi boat
New York has many great Sushi restaurants to enjoy!

Sushi Nakazawa
Location: 23 Commerce St, New York, NY 10014
Phone: 212-924-2212
Neighborhood: Gramercy
Cuisine: Sushi

Sushi Nakazawa serves the popular, Omakase of Chef Daisuke Nakazawa, which is a 20-course meal featuring ingredients sourced both domestically and internationally. This very special tasting menu is served in the style of Edomae Sushi. 

The relaxed dining experience at Sushi Nakazawa is chic, nonetheless. High back leather chairs at the sushi bar coddle you while each course is explained in detail, and every nuance is revealed. Whether an Edomae Sushi novice or a ‘Sushi Expert’, you will appreciate the freshness and quality of Sushi Nakazawa.

Blue Ribbon Sushi is the creation of Bruce & Eric Bromberg and Sushi master, Toshi Ueki. Blue Ribbon Sushi is known for its extensive selection of fresh fish flown in daily from the Sea of Japan, Atlantic ocean and Pacific ocean.

If you’re not too price sensitive, try some the daily specialty items, like Sea Urchin direct from Japan.

Expertly prepared sushi
Rather than order off the menu, often it is best to just let the Sushi Chef create something special for you!

Haru Sushi
Location: 229 W 43rd St #221, New York, NY 10036
Phone:  212-398-9810 
Neighborhood: Theater District
Cuisine: Japanese & Sushi

Haru Sushi is located blocks from the heart of Times Square and directly across the street from The Lyric Theater, and close to many more theaters making it an ideal place to dine before the show.

Haru is a modern Japanese & Sushi restaurant serving large portions and striking design.  Its elegant interior, featuring a striking birch ‘wall’ that separates the main dining space from the full bar and Sushi bar, is matched by a creative menu for Sushi connoisseurs and first-time diners alike.

Another Theater District favorite, consistent and moderately priced.

Trendy, specialty sushi rolls
Traditional Sushi is great but sometimes we like the new, trendy Specialty Rolls!

Location: 185 7th Ave, New York, NY 10011
Phone: 212-989-4466
Neighborhood: Chelsea
Cuisine: Sushi

The interior design of Momova is enough to make you want to try this place but the fresh and innovative Sushi will bring you back. Impeccably fresh fish, like silky Toro.

The Specialty Rolls are a favorite, but may we suggest trying the Spicy Tuna Roll which is topped with flamed Yellowtail and almonds; another roll marries jalapeño, salmon, tuna, cucumber and scallop tartare.
