Description: 1954 Fuji Sushi is the First Japanese Restaurant in NY City, one of the firsts in the United States. Designed with attention to details normally reserved for sculptures, Fuji is elegant without being stodgy. The Japanese Cuisine is so good it lives up to the legend inspiring gallant decor. You don’t have to travel half way around the world to immerse yourselves in far away cultures. You can partake in Fuji's unique pleasures of creative sushi and a mix of traditional and modern Japanese entrees. This incredibly stylish restaurant, bar and joint set the tone of modern day Zen Ambiance.

A friend and I went to Fuji Sushi for sushi, and overall, I felt it was average sushi and nothing special. Of course, being New York, there were many sushi options within close proximity to Fuji Sushi, but we just walked right into this one not needing a reservation. That can be a good and bad thing at the same... More

My spouse and I went to the Fuji Restaurant in January, 2013. We have returned to the Fuji on and off for over 50 years and remember coming to the Fuji as a young couple. We had not planned to dine at the Fuji, but happened on the restaurant as we were going to Lincoln Center. We both had a... More

Went for a Saturday dinner and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The sushi menu was extensive and the sushi was great quality with generous portions of fish. Not too many people there and generally a very mellow and relaxed dining experience that we really enjoyed. Not at all a pretentious NYC sushi joint, and I'd go back there anytime.
