Foursquare Tips

  • An exquisite raw fish experience with uniquely crafted pieces. Try the tuna with tofu cream, flounder with lotus chip, and the foie gras sushi.
  • omakase. that is all.
  • The original location of Masatoshi Gari Sugio's chainlet is still one of the best sushi restaurants in NYC. Start with an omakase tasting, finish with the tempura-fried ice cream. [Eater 38 Member]
  • One Michelin star.
  • All I can say is YUM - order the Omakase! The chef really knows what he's doing!
  • Ask for omakase. You will have an orgasm in your mouth. Oh, and ask for sake to liberate the entrance.
  • Did you know? Sushi of Gari is one of the only restaurants in the US where you can try out the TOTO Washlet S350e toilet seat (a Japanese bidet). It's true luxury (for your butt).
  • Masatoshi Sugio's fanciful creations continue to draw thrill-seeking Japanophiles to his tiny Upper East Side flagship, where they shell out a hefty sum for a pay-per-piece spot at the L-shaped bar.
  • Mortgage the house and order the omakase!
  • Best sushi in all of NYC, hands down. The special salmon sushi piece with cooked tomato is an absolute must try.
  • Best overpriced sushi I've had in the city (overpriced comparators being ushiwakamaru and nobu)
  • Delicious approach to fusion sushi. Go for the omakase. Tell then to stop when u are done. 10 pcs of sushi at around 75 dollars.
  • Guaranteed one of the best meals of your life if you have the Omikase. Each piece melts in your mouth. Sushi heaven.
  • Doing the omakase. It's really the only way.
  • Order the omakase and let the chef choose the best fish of the day. Their uni is divine.
  • Money sushi.. No sauce required!
  • Spicy Scallop Roll is a must
  • Hot sake & omakase. Delicious win.
  • Sure Gari has opened other locations in the city but somehow the quality of his innovative creations is never quite the same as at his baby on the Upper East Side. - Inspector
  • The spicy scallop hand roll here is amazing. It contains mayo but it's divine. A must try.
