Fodor's Review

Daisuke dreams of sushi. Fans of the acclaimed 2011 documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi may remember Daisuke Nakazawa, the apprentice to the great Tokyo-based sushi master Jiro Ono, who spent the near-entirety of the film trying to perfect the egg custard. He finally succeeded, just as he has succeeded in wooing even the most finicky New York diners. It's all omakase (a tasting menu set by the chef) here, so sit back and enjoy two hours of being fed by one of the best sushi chefs in New York. Mr. Nakazawa practices an old Tokyo style of sushi making—putting all his highly fresh fish on a thumb-size bundle of rice. (Sorry, sashimi fans.) Reserve at least a month in advance, or try to get a table in the à la carte, no-reservations room adjacent to the restaurant.
