Jewel Bako

Jewel Bako Review

Tiny Jewel Bako is arguably the best sushi restaurant in the East Village, gleaming in a minefield of cheap, often inferior sushi houses. The futuristic bamboo tunnel of a dining room is gorgeous, but try to nab a place at the sushi bar and put yourself in the hands of sushi master Yoshi Kousaka. The five-course omakase, or chef's menu, starts at $115. (A less-expensive sushi or sashimi omakase is $65.) You'll be served only what's freshest and best.
