  • Kissaki Omakase

    Soulmate Score: 
    Excellent
    Visit Date:

    Getting ready to attend our first grand opening had us thinking, what makes a great omakase? If we were opening our own omakase what would we focus on? We brainstormed out loud: well-seasoned rice served at the right temperature, high quality sourcing of not just the fish but of all ingredients used, innovative bites that combine...

    We paid $400 a person for dinner at Sushi Ginza Onodera New York and quickly reaffirmed the notion that price does not reflect quality no matter how many Michelin stars a restaurant may have. Sushi Ginza Onodera is on its fourth year in business and they’ve certainly cemented an impressive reputation amongst 5th avenue business...

    Although omakase dates are usually two-person affairs for us, on this occasion we had a couple of young soulmates-in-training who wanted to come along and join in our favorite activity. A family sushi outing was a last minute idea, so we found ourselves scrambling to find a high-quality sushiya that was kid friendly, somewhere on the...

    Any self-proclaimed sushi connoisseur has most likely seen the wildly popular Netflix documentary, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, starring world renowned sushi master Jiro Ono and featuring his apprentice, Daisuke Nakazawa. The documentary inspired restauranteur  Alessandro Borgognone so much, he reached out to Chef Nakazawa on...

  • 15 East

    Soulmate Score: 
    Excellent
    Visit Date:

    On a random Wednesday after a long day of working in the office, we quickly searched for a last minute omakase to enjoy with a colleague. We had plenty of options in walking distance from Union Square, and after getting denied at Shuko, 15 East had our backs with a last minute cancellation at the sushi bar. We’d heard about this...

  • Sushi Noz

    Soulmate Score: 
    Outstanding
    Visit Date:

    From the moment you walk through Sushi Noz’s midnight-blue curtains, you are instantly transported from an unassuming Upper East Side façade to a serene and tranquil foyer in some hidden gem of a spot in Tokyo or Osaka. You don’t yet know it, but you are not just a customer here—you are now an audience member...

    Soulmate Score: 
    Fair
    Visit Date:

    When you’ve been excited all day thinking you have a Sushi Noz reservation but it turns out not to be until next Thursday…you come up with a quick Plan B. Although Tanoshi Sushi Sake Bar was our back up plan, I can’t say we’d suggest it as a Plan B or even Plan C in the future, and certainly not a Plan A....

  • Sushi Lab

    Very Good
    Visit Date:

    With Saturday night plans in place to see a Broadway show, the hunt for a non-touristy midtown sushi spot was on. Having recently visited Sushi by Bou located under the Sanctuary Hotel, we took notice of the restaurant’s new neighbor residing just inside the hotel: Sushi Lab. We’d seen countless instagrams of Sushi...

  • Sushi by Bou

    Soulmate Score: 
    Very Good
    Visit Date:

    After hearing about Sushi by Bou for some time now, we knew we had to get our two-cents (or fifty-dollars) in. Chef David Bouhadana has found himself in a couple of controversies over the years from serving sushi bare handed (I mean, yes please) and being a white man speaking with a Japanese accent (yikes). Controversies aside, the guy...

    Sushi Ishikawa is a fairly new omakase addition to the Upper East Side. They specialize in innovative omakase, offering a unique twist on traditional omakase led by Chef Don Pham. Sushi enthusiasts may know Chef Pham from his days as Executive Sushi Chef at popular NYC sushi hub O...

  • NAOE

    Very Good
    Visit Date:

    There is no doubt that NAOE is one of the best small-table Omakase style restaurants within a thousand miles of Miami. NAOE is led by Chef Kevin Cory, whose path to success began at age 19 under the tutelage of Kyoto-based executive chef Nobuo Kase. After living in Toyama and being trained by his highly revered uncle, Uashushi...

  • Noda

    Soulmate Score: 
    Excellent
    Visit Date:

    Omakase coupled with an intimate dining experience and VIP treatment seems to be trending in NYC. Noda brings the "best ofs" together to create an ultimate experience. Though the atmosphere seemed very high end, Chef Shigeyuki Tsunoda was super down to earth and friendly. After being trained by Tokyo’s Saito team and...

  • Sushi Kaito

    Excellent
    Visit Date:

    First things first, Sushi Kaito is a great deal. A 16-piece omakase for $120 is an omakase we can get behind. The variety and the freshness of the fish, the mastery and affability of the sushi chef, and the quality of service make this little Upper West Side omakase spot the best bang for your...

  • Sasabune

    Soulmate Score: 
    Very Good
    Visit Date:

    Sasabune was our first love. It was the first sushi restaurant where we could really taste and experience quality and mastery. We quickly discovered that we had much more to learn about the art of sushi and decided to save up for the more expensive, higher quality sushi at Sasabune than wasting our money at our local run-of-the-mill...

    Good
    Visit Date:

    When Chef Byeong Seok Lee became Executive Chef of Neta in 2017 you could easily taste how this restaurant was instantly elevated. Chef Lee first started working at Neta in 2013 and fused together his love of both eastern and western cooking to create some of the most eclectic flavors we’ve tasted at any sushi-based restaurant in...
