The food was exquisite, each course got the taste buds going!!! The Chef & staff explained every course, even were it came from. The service was great and the atmosphere was good. Great to go back again.

It's really a small Omakase Sushi place. There are tables, but to get the real experience you have to sit at the counter and have Chef Inoue serve his Omakase. It's not cheap, and I've never sat at the tables, so I don't know how...More

Central Harlem is not known as a sushi destination, but that's about to change. Sushi Inoue joins several other high-flying restaurants of recent vintage--including Red Rooster, Babbalucci, and Tio Luca--in making Lenox Ave. above 125th St. a destination for tourists and locals alike.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighborhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local
institutions. The heart of the neighborhood is
bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
