Rank: A. Arguably, the best sushi place in all of Manhattan. As much as it pains me to give up this info, to get the best experience, be sure to sit at the bar with the head sushi chef Hideo Kuribara. Eating sushi at a table, even 30 seconds or a minute after he makes the sushi, alters the taste and is not the same experience. The sushi is at the top of the class and the other sushi spots in NYC all play second fiddle (Blue Fin, Bond St., Sushi of Gari, Morimoto, Sushi Azabu, Sushi Yasuda, etc.). The one sushi place I can not make a comparison is to Masa, but at the fraction of the cost of Masa's omakase, perhaps no need to. The scallop, giant clam, sweet shrimp, caviar w/ quail egg, fatty tuna, seared fatty tuna (personal favorite), roe, and uni (Japanese and California) are all personal favorites.
