Urgent help with sushi tomorrow night

mattt Aug 11, 2006 08:31 PM

I have a couple of friends coming into town tomorrow night. They wanted to go out for high-end sushi, having been out of pocket for some time. I wasn't able to get into Matsuhisa, which was their first choice, but got into Nishimura and Wa Sushi. I haven't been to either, but here's the twist: my wife is pregnant and not eating fish. Does anyone know if either of these (or any other suggestions) have some chicken or beef for her? Any other ideas?

    nishimura is not the place to go when you're not eating fish. it's just not what he does. the guys at wa are former matsuhisa chefs and their cook food is good and innovative, however, i go for the sushi.

        Koi, believe it or not, has really good sushi. You won't be able to get a reservation, but they talk walk-ins before 7:30 p.m. (get there at 7 to be safe) for the sushi bar and the lounge area (has tables and chairs). They have a great selection of cooked food. Try the lamb chops with jalapeno mashed potatoes - to die for.

          WA will fit the parameters with their mix of cooked and variety of Meats and Veggies. Not to mention their Fusion Sushi, ask for Chef TT.
