Expert review of Sushi Yasuda

For people who know their sushi, this offers the best quality in New York.

For classic Japanese-style, no nonsense sushi I head to Sushi Yasuda where Chef Naomichi Yasuda painstakingly handpicks each of his fish from a selection flown in from Japan and domestically.

Food and drink: 

The result is some of the best quality sushi in the world, with seven selections of tuna, from bigeye to bluefin, and hard to find varieties like seki-saba, a rare form of mackerel.

Ambience: 

A cool minimalist space, and reserved business crowd.

Service: 

The only downsides are a rather officious staff (yes I did ask for a California roll).

Location: 

The street front location in Midtown makes it perfect for a business meal.

Price advice: 

Sushi doesn’t get any more expensive than this. Rolls from US$8 and a three-course meal without wine is about US$42 per person.

Tables to book: 

The best service (and best show) is definitely at the sushi bar.
