Sushi is becoming one of the most famous foods in New York City. Now you can see Japanese cuisine flourishing, becoming a favoured choice among New Yorkers.
Imagine a beautiful thinly sliced piece of fish, lightly seasoned with soy or wasabi, served on a bed of loosely packed rice! And mouthwatering as that sounds, that’s your typical piece of heaven called sushi.
If you ever find yourself in New York, you should definitely try the sushi here!
Heres’ a list of some of the best sushi in the city:
1. Sushi Azabu
Sushi Azabu is a quiet, speakeasy, a subterranean vibed sushi bar in New York City. Here, the food speaks for itself. 70% of their fish is directly imported from Japan, four times a week! Their house-made soy sauce is delicious and is infused with mirin, kelp and other spices. Do try their seared salmon, it is perfect in every way.
2. Sushi Seki
If renowned chefs hang out at Sushi Seki post work-hours, you know it must be darn good. This sake fuelled diner/restaurant serves its own rendition of classic flavour combos and is open until 3 am! Relish their salmon with scallion sauce, their bluefin tuna with onion creme fraiche or (the chef’s signature) the yellowtail.
Masa can be categorised as one of the most high-end sushi bars in all of New York! A simple meal, albeit heavenly, can cost around $700-800! But if it’s that expensive, it must yield. And it does. Masa offers exquisite slices of fish with generous amounts of shaved truffle, risotto cooked in truffle oil and butter and lobster in foie gras, to name a few dishes. The exclusivity of the place and the complexity of their cooking buy Masa a place on our list.
