Sushi in Nassau

Governor Mar 7, 1999 10:08 AM

Been meaning to give this place a plug. After
lamenting on the outer boroughs board about the dearth
of good sushi in Queens, I have to praise a place on
Main Street in Port Washington called Yamaguchi's.

Caveats: Normally one of my favorite appetizers is
shu mai, avoid it here: tough and rough. An
appetizer of sea bass in a light, tangy glaze was
however, perfection.

Still, you're going here for the sushi. Fresh,
expertly cut, generously portioned pieces. A
surprising charmer is called Shrimp Sandwiches, which
by all rights should be awful, WASP sushi. Lightly
steamed, butterflied sweet shrimp sandwiched around
crabmeat with a sprinkling of herring roe, bound with
(of all things) mayo. Again, should be awful, but I'm
going to end up ordering rounds for the table on my
next visit.

    My favorite Japanese restaurant on LI is Nagashima in Jericho. The sushi is wonderful and so are the items on the rest of the menu.
