Foursquare Tips

  • Omakase-only sushi bar Shuko is dark and intimate, complete with a diningcave. Expect simple, classic preparations, and the occasional truffle encrusted sushi roll or caviar-topped lump of toro.
  • Grab a bite at NYC's newest restaurant. It hosts a 20-seat sushi counter where diners will be served a set menu of 12 to 15 courses by both Kim and Lau.
  • People talk about the apple pie, but the citrus granite did it for me. Sadly, if you go the kaiseki route, which you should, you'll have to forgo the uni flight that comes in the omakase.
  • Been following these guys from masa to neta to shoku popup to here. Come hungry and get the 15 course. Cocktails early and sake later. Chat up your chef and get a second round of Hokkaido uni. A+++
  • Epic sushi omakase
  • My fav omakase experience
  • Ive had both sushi omakase and kaiseki and continue to go back for the sushi. Great rice! Hip hop music. Great selection of sake, beers and cocktails. Tops, recommended.
  • Literally everything, please eat here.
  • Kaiseki comprises great to nearly incredible dishes. Shockingly large amount of food, too, making the $200 tag surprisingly reasonable. Service is attentive, although could be refined. Top NYC spot.
  • Best omakase in NY!
  • Ask for Jimmy. Let him decide what you eat.
  • Shuko often only serves about two pieces of the meaty delicacy as part of the menu, which Kim grills over the binchotan and places in a hammock of nori. The texture is pure foie gras.
  • My personal favorite omakase experience in the city. Fish, flavors, vibe, music, service, sake served in Zalto glasses... 10/10 across the board.
  • Go for the kaiseki vs the omakase, it's 17 pieces of sushi instead of 20 but the little plates that come before sushi and the dessert course are completely worth it!
  • crazy expensive but cool vibes inside
  • Chef Jeff had two dinners before meeting Dev at Carbone, and this was the first. He went in to say hi to his friend Nick tries the tuna, and ends up ten courses into the tasting menu. [Episode 5]
  • Talk to anyone who eats or cooks for a living and many will profess an devotion to all things sushi. Count me as a member of that group. Im happiest sitting in front of chefs Jimmy Lau and Nick Kim.
  • If you can handle a big meal, go for the kaiseki. You get the omakase and some amazing additions. Milk bread with tuna tartar with caviar . And they play mostly hip hop. Pricey too.
  • Tasting $135; kaiseki $175
  • Sublime sushi. Great spot if you have the budget. - the foodie magician
