tokyo-style sushi?

i went to sushi yasuda recently and found it to be absolutely amazing; unquestionably the best sushi i've ever had, and wonderful service. i wonder if there are other traditional, tokyo-style sushi restaurants in manhattan or brooklyn that folks think are similar to yasuda. the simple elegance and superb quality of the food is essential. thanks!

  1. ok so for instance, how about sushi-ann? kuruma zushi? bond st? jewel bako?

    i remember hearing that there are two or three sushi restaurants that are comparable to sushi yasuda but do not recall what they are.

      I've not been to kuruma zushi - due to price - and haven't been to Tokyo - but a good friend whose opinion I respect has been to kuruma zushi and said the fish was incredible, as was the price.

    2. Hi I think there was a discussion re the best sushi places in New York, if you do a search in Chowhound for a thread starting high end sushi..

      1. Any of the Sushi of Gari locations (UES, UWS, Theatre Row)! Yummy!

        1. Gari is not Tokyo style. For that matter neither is Yasuda.

          Yasuda is Edo style.

            could you elaborate and offer a place that is tokyo style in NYC, if there is one? I am interested.

              Ummm... Edo is the old name for Tokyo.

                great to know! and also funny. thanks, woodside al.

            2. interesting - it was one of the chefs at yasuda who specifically called their sushi "traditional Tokyo-style." the tallish one with a ponytail. goes by hiro, among other names.

              i will research this further.

              whatever tradition it is, technically speaking, the question really is about other restaurants that are similar to sushi yasuda in terms of sushi preparation and presentation. so if you have any such suggestions, sushiman, i'd love to hear them!
