  1. Sushi Nanase— 522 Mamaroneck Ave., White Plains (914) 285-5351;

    An awesome experience. I believe the chef used to work for Nobu.

    1. Azuma Sushi in Hartsdale. It has nothing but the highest quality, fresh fish. You'll pay for it, but it is well worth it.

        Ditto on Azuma Sushi, probably the best in Westchester, but almost NYC prices for top notch.

      2. What are the price ranges at Sushi Nanase?

        1. 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.

          1. 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.

              very sad, yesterday i went for lunch to be one of the first 20! :) and we were greeted by a sign that says they are temporarily closed for lunch. :(

                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....
