Hakata in Port Chester closes, another Peruvian opening in its place--ISO sushi

Well Hakata, which I thought was pretty good for sushi, closed last week. A passerby said ANOTHER Peruvian place was going to open it its place. What's that like 10 Peruvian haunts now in PC?

Anyways, any suggestions for sushi? Is Edo just hibachi? I know some people go to the Rye Brook Waldbaum's but I was hoping for a sit down place. I know there are Greenwich and White Plains alternatives but I wanted to stay closer to PC for lunch.

  1. I like Kira Sushi in Armonk.

    1. Hajime in Harrison.
      Koo in Rye.
      In White Plains on Mamaroneck Ave., (next to La Bottega hair salon and the Japanese grocery), there is a little hole in the wall sushi place which has been written about before on these boards. I think the chef used to work for Nobu and he imports his sushi from Japan. Expensive but awesome.

      1. yeah, there are a million peruvian places in PC... more like 15 or more. it is quite amazing that all stay in business as long as they do.

        sorry I don't know PC sushi places well. Just Greenwich, which you weren't interested in for these purposes. FWIW, when you do get up there, try Ku. Very good sushi.

          just as a follow up, I noticed the "Acuario" spray painted on the Hakata awning. So it seems that the peruvian place isn't actually new - they are just taking Hakata's location...

        2. The Sushi place in White Plains directly to the right of the entrance for Nippon Daido is extremely traditional Japanese sushi. They are only open at nights (I think the hours are from 6-10pm) and have a $30 minimum per customer. I have not eaten there as of yet, (I was with a party of people who would not have been able to eat $30 worth of sushi per person) but it reminded me of some of the sushi bars that I had visited while in Tokyo.

          There are a couple of "sushi deli" type places around White Plains though. There's one in Hartsdale which is pretty good inbetween the Meidi-Ya and the Sake store.

          Tanto in Scarsdale is also another good sushi-deli. They also make a really good Ramen soup. I have not found many places in the tri-state area that can make a really good Ramen. (Even the Ramen place at Mitsuwa in Edgewater, NJ is a little bit lacking at times, even though they are probably the best you will find on the East coast).

          Can anyone reccomend any of the other Japanese places in the area? Azuma in Hartsdale has a pretty good reputation. Has anyone tried Noda or Tak'e in White Plains?

          1. Found some more info about the Sushi place next to Nippon Daido. It is called Nanase Sushi and its webpage is here: . It seems as though I was wrong about their lunch schedule though. They are open for lunch starting at 12pm but only accept the first 20 customers.

              Nanase had the best sushi I've had in Westchester. Very expensive, but wonderful. Much more interesting assortment of fish than Azuma in Hartsdale.
