My personal favorite. The fish is incredibly fresh and the preparation authentic. You start to understand a sushi lover's obsession fresh uni (two types here) and toro.

It’s also a pleasant environment for a meal, which can’t be said for many of the other elite sushi restaurants in town. But make sure you go with people that want to get down on a serious sushi experience (no special rolls with spicy mayo).

Sit at the sushi bar for the true omakase experience. And don't forget to try the Octopus, a signature dish - poached in sake, sliced, and served with sea salt.

By far the most original sushi experiments in the city. Avant-garde sushi at its best.

Tuna topped with creamy tofu mayonnaise, eel avocado tartar sushi, seared BBQ toro, yellowtail jalapeno, red snapper with lotus root salad, and, our favorite, salmon with broiled tomato.

Discriminating diners turned sashimi mavens have long lauded this haunt for its ameri-sized portions and excellent tastes. You don't come here for the ambiance or decor (there is none) and you will wait in line...but once visit to this Greenwich Village spot and you will know why. They also excel in handrolls.

Behind the nameless exterior is an austere, whitewashed room with a polished wood sushi bar (where you want to be sitting).

Fish is flown in from around the globe five times a week and prepared in esoteric ways. While waiting for Masa's to masterfully prepare each piece. definitely indulge in the inventive appetizers, many of which feature uni, the cocktail is not one you want to share or miss!

The best (and only) sushi in Chelsea.

Lunch specials are special - chirashi being the best i've tasted. The sushi sampler is inventive with just the right rice ratio. And it comes with any of their special rolls - my pick being the spicy tuna topped with seared hamachi and toasted almonds. Also a nice menu for vegetarians if you should have to drag them to fill your sushi cravings.

Hidden sushi in the basement of a Tribeca restauranrt, Greenwich Grill. Once the allure of finding it settles in, the sushi does not disappoint and the omakase is comparably affordable. The best kept secret of this hideaway lies in its exciting list of lesser-known fish. Let the chef decide...

If the line at tomoe is too long, turn the corner on Houston to see some serious sushi snobs sipping sake at the bar. Omakase is the only way to get down here.

Personally I prefer the bakery or brasserie from this group but a good soho spot, especially on expense reports or for after midnight meals.
