A shibari box to die for

An excellent place. Amazing quality of all the ingedients. Starting with the rice cooked to close to perfection all the way to the eels or tuna tartar. When in the City a weekly must go

This place has been open for over 30 years. Same chief and the owner. Sashimi is as good as in in Tokyo fish market. Must have is tuna tar tar, soft shell crab, and of course sashimi. Most of the time there is a time, so come a bit early. The setting is very simple, it is all about fish... More

The makis are just amaizing. Dont expect fancy sushi,with 100ingredients, but the simplest are the best ones. For dessert we tried green tea mousse,and we loved it. We highly recommend this place.

Quality sushi is hard to find in North America - even in NYC. Most places serve pretty mediocre fish and when you've experienced "the real thing", it's hard to go back. But the problem is that high quality sushi is often blindingly expensive. Not so at Tomoe. We had top quality, super-fresh fish and our bill for two was around... More

No reservations, need to queue, but it's worth to wait...Tomoe offers one of the best sushi in NYC. It is a tiny place, nothing stylish but the sushi... Unagi, uni, sake nigiri, toro nigiri and spicy tuna roll...And a cold sake! By the way, only amex or cash!

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
