Yes, 15 years later there is still a line before they open up. Absolute amazing place that is consistent with the quality for tens of years, worth every bite. A must, tuna tar tar, or a roll, can't find the same quality even in Japan!

OK -- let's get one thing out of the way: this place is a dive. I've been coming here for 20 years, and the decor hasn't changed. But that's OK -- nobody stands for 30 min in line for ambience. You come because Tomoe has some of the best (if not *the* best) fish in the city. Generous cuts of... More

It's New Yorker's best kept secret sushi restaurant. And for the last 26 years it is. And on top of that - it is the highest gap between decor and food. And you can't make reservations. You have to stant in line in the cold of night. That's why I like it. That's why you shouldn't go - cause you'll... More

We just ate a superb meal here. We ave had unagi (freshwater eel) and this was betterhan any we had in Tokyo or Kyoto. The California roll was large and succulent. Service was quick and attentive. Very reasonably priced.

Staying in Greenwich Village

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.
