Sushi Yasuda, New York

Back in NY and taking a client for lunch… I was thrilled when he suggested Sushi Yasuda, as I had been wanting to go for ages. We both got the omakase, and I couldn’t have been more excited…

First, we received a cold appetizer, a gloopy flavourful liquid with bits of seaweed in it – odd but pretty good. Then, a huge sashimi dish… All of the sashimi was good, especially the mackerel, the fatty tuna (so buttery) and the clam.


Then, a plate of eight different nigiri… all good, but none exceptional. On the side, a crab nigiri, an eel nigiri (this one was really good), a sweet prawn nigiri, and an uni nigiri. All good… again, none were exceptional.

Overall, all of the the food was good, but I was really expecting more… especially given our bill! I would come back again but maybe be more selective in choosing my sushi, instead of taking the omakase…
