“Adventurous sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

This restaurant proved to be the perfect pre-theater stop. It's located within a few blocks of all the major venues, and both the chefs and wait staff are expert at making sure orders arrive promptly. We never felt rushed, and had ample time to enjoy both the modernist Asian atmosphere and the cuisine. The sushi here is a cut above the norm, and the menu is creative, often incorporating fruit into the tasty rolls. My signature matsuri roll contained small slices of apple, and came decorated with sprinkles of gold leaf. Delicious! The pom-glazed tilapia entree is also recommended for its flavorful sauce. Be aware that in addition to the Mai restaurant, which can get plenty noisy in peak times, there is also a bar which serves the full menu in a more relaxed setting.

Sushi is delicious. And bartender even better. Some of the best sushi rolls ever. Always packed. Reasonably priced.

“Delicious sushi and miso soup!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

We ate dinner at this chic japanese restaurant and my husband and I were blown away by how tasty their food was. I had salmon and my husband ordered sushi. Both plates were nicely decorated and the flavors were to die for. We also got miso soup since it was cold outside and it was just delicious. Their manager Tony is such a gentleman. We will definitely drop by Natsumi during our next trip to the city!

“Great sushi meal before the theater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

I went with a friend before seeing Wicked- we really enjoyed the food and the service was very nice. We were looking for a sushi place when we were down near Chelsea market, and found list place via a few searches on my iphone. I made a reservation for 5:30 a couple of hours before the seating time based on seeing people's recommendations, but this was on a Sunday. The food was very good, and we enjoyed the meal. They don't have the descriptions for the "normal" rolls, so that was a bit intimidating for a fairly new sushi eater. My friend had a combo plate and I ordered three rolls, and we had plenty of food and didn't feel rushed at all. I would definitely go back here. :)
