I've tried sushi at many establishments before, but I have to say that Sushi Yasuda definitely makes a positive impression. Below are some notes from a recent omakase experience at the bar: * The fish is, to state the obvious, very fresh. * I appreciate the nigiri style here, where the fish almost seems to encase the rice. * The...

This used to be my favorite spot for fresh sushi and it still is one of them but recently I feel like the creativity is in this is early there as much anymore which is why I no longer order Omakase when I sit by the bar because I don't want to get six different salmon pieces or some of... More

Best sushi in NYC hands down. Must book at this midtown restaurant specializing in sushi. It's for the sushi connossieur and the prices reflect that. But if you love great sushi and are prepared to pay the price for it, you will love sushi Yusuda.

Called ahead to ask if we needed reservations for dinner, I was told that since it was a slow night (tuesday) we can just come ahead. We arrived at 6pm looking forward to a great night. The host told us that he can only accomodate us if we finish at 730pm. We were surprised by this condition. We were shown... More

I am no stranger to sushi and fresh fish but Yasuda NY takes this to another level. There are no new "food inventions" as mentioned by others but that's because this place is about quality not quantity. The standard sushi and sashimi sets make you reconsider what you thought good sushi meant. If you go, I highly recommend the sushi... More

It's smooth sailing at Sushi Yasuda once you manage to get a reservation. The location itself is good, the decor inside the restaurant remains traditional- wood, hibachi kitchen, minimalistic table decor. A benefit is that you cannot see onto the street as the windows are opaque, adding tranquility to the place. The sushi is delightful, they definitely know their trade.... More

For a special occasion, the omakase is outstanding. I literally did not know sushi could be this good. And I'm not exaggerating. You sit at a beautiful wooden sushi bar and watch as the chefs carefully prepare your meal, and individually present you with each piece of fish or plate. If you've grown up eating run of the mill, $25... More

They only take phone call reservations so although it was long-d for me, I still did as I wanted to try this restaurant while visiting NYC. We flew in yesterday and we walked to the restaurant today for our 7:30 reservation. The host tells me that they called me more than once when they don't even have to do that... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
