Less than 30 people can fit into this hidden subterranean gem, an unmarked sushi shrine tucked beneath the Greenwich Grill. It’s worth the hunt to get here, though: the lucky few who get seats at the tiny bar or in one of its three enormous circular booths dine on some of the the freshest sashimi and nigiri in the city. The à la carte menu dazzles with selections like o-toro and white sweet shrimp, but the chef’s omakase remains the center of attention, with exquisitely prepared cooked dishes served alongside expertly sliced sashimi and nigiri. You can can truly consider yourself an in-the-know New Yorker after finding and dining at this bamboo-ceilinged hideaway.
Business lunchers, sushi snobs, romantic couples, and those-in-the-know.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Keep it elegantly simple with a sweater, slacks, heels or flats, and tasteful jewelry.

A friend; significant other; a date; a sushi aficionado
WHY WE LIKE IT
It’s a true hideaway–we only spot savvy locals here. We love the attention to detail, from the housemade soy sauce to the special blend of sushi rice to the imported chopsticks; this is one of the finest sushi experiences we’ve had outside of Japan.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The back booth is really close to the restroom–not exactly ideal, especially somewhere this high-end.
GOOD TO KNOW
As at any sushi establishment worth its salt, the best seats in the house are at the sushi bar. The chef’s omakase starts at USD 100; if you wish to really taste the finest the house has to offer (or are just looking to splash some cash), give your sushi chef carte blanche.
