    Esashi on Avenue A and 3rd street.

    super-fresh fish, some interesting 'special rolls' and a nice (if not all that large) sake selection.

      It has roots in the hood going back 20 years. Is better then ever.

      1. definitely go to hasaki.

        it's on stuyvesant st at e. 9th st, a block north of st. marks place and just east of 3rd ave.

        1. Living around the neighborhood, Sharaku on 9th street is my favorite local joint. Very consistent. I always order the village jumbo sashimi with a friend. They also feature Early bird/latenight specials. There are less expensive options in the neighborhood but its a gamble. I would rather forte over a couple of more dollars than to agonize over whether the sushi is fresh today or not.

          1. Kura 1st ave at 4th

            It ain't Yasuda or Masa, but it's a good reasonibly priced east village neighborhood place
