amazing sushi in westchester-where should i go?
Where can I find sushi that will be as good as sushi of gari in the city in westchester?
Interesting, is Sushi Nanase new?
I can't think of the names of the places I frequent, sorry, on Mamaroneck Ave. near the movie theater and in Armonk. I like them both.
Sushi Mike's is supposed to be good.
Sushi Nanase has been around I'd say for about a year now. A lot (if not all) of the fish is flown in from Japan. There have been previous postings on this place that have gone into detail.
They also have a tasting menu and an extensive sake selection (and if I recall you can also do a sake tasting menu). I had the basic mixed sushi platter which was $35. Each piece of fish was matched with either a unique sauce or garnish, it was delicious, beautiful to look at and very memorable.
This is a very small place, and the chef pays careful attention to details.
re: Dim Sum Diva
finally got to go to dinner at nanase last friday; thank you for the recommendation, because nanase was fantastic! the difference between azuma and nanase as far as the quality of fish is small; i would say nanase is slightly better. the uni was very very creamy; and the otoro (oh-toro) tasted, for lack of a better word, pure. but what makes nanase stand out is the garnish that is matched with each fish. for example, i believe the yellowtail had grated lime zest. as you said, it was delicious and memorable.
the couple next to us had the tasting menu, and i was surprised at the amount of food that they were given--the courses kept coming out!
we ordered a la carte (probably 10+ pieces and one roll each), had two beers, and the total before gratuity was about 165. much more than what i've spent at azuma, but it was a nice splurge and worth it.
also, i would recommend calling for reservations; it seemed as most of the people who came in already had reservations, and surprisingly, no one was seated at the bar....
btw, i read in westchester magazine that the chef has a love for salts, and it made me recall that in the salmon roll, i would taste random little 'nuggets' of salt, which was surprising and pleasing....
