Foursquare Tips

  • Fantastic sushi/sashimi served up by one of the greatest people you will ever meet. Mitchan has such a outgoing, hilarious personality and is a genius sushi chef to boot. Trust in him and get omakase.
  • Hidden away in Hells Kitchen is this oasis of sushi goodness! Tuna that melts in your mouth is truly hard to find. Oysters are awesome as they add a special dressing. Rolls are great too.
  • The lunch portions are delicious and filling, and the service is impeccable. Sit by sushi bar and meet the sushi chef Mitchan - he knows his stuff and what a goofy, corky personality!
  • Some of the best and freshest sushi in NYC. Avoid other sushi restaurants at all costs as come here. Not the best atmosphere but quality of food trumps all.
