SENSATIONAL SUSHI OF GARI 46 – BEST IN NY

What is the BEST sushi restaurant in New York?

This very heated question will get a lot of different answers from sushi aficionados.

Top names are usually: Suki Seki, Masa, Neta, Soto and definitely  Sushi Gari. Depending if are you a sushi purist, a traditionalist, a new-age fusion lover.

Well, when you want the best in sushi, it won’t be cheap, however, despite people saying Masa is overpriced and Soto is Uni focussed, Sushi Gari runs the gamut  of the BEST  OMAKASE for both new age and purists.

I prefer to sit at the bar and watch the masters carve away at the tempting little joys of sushi and sashimi. Gari has 3 locations in New York and requires a credit card for a reservation, but walks ins in the theatre district and Tribeca are pretty easy.  Top sushi restaurants are usually well-lit and sterile, so you will have to skip the sexy restaurant and let your tastebuds be the focus.

The must try on the Omakase flight are the Tuna with Tomato, Seared Toro, and Seared Seabass sushi. Moist hot rice, soft fresh fish and a little dusting of flavor or the swipe of a marinade = Heaven.

The best part is you will finish the meal feeling full, flooded with flavors and yet relatively light, including your wallet 😉

I like to think of the “Pantheon” rather than the best. Latter is so limiting, while the former is more encompassing. We live in a time of such abundance. why limit ourselves? (:
