Where's Brooklyn's Best Sushi?

The only place I ever go for sushi in Brooklyn is Blue Ribbon Sushi on 5th Ave. in Park Slope. I have to admit, I've been afraid to go elsewhere for fear of a lag of turn around time on fish. Call me overly cautious. Anyway, what other suggestions can you give me for good (pref. great) sushi in the BK? - specifically in the areas within 2-3 miles of Downtown Brooklyn. Wherever the best sushi is, let me know. Thanks!

  1. If you search it, you'll find quite a bit of discussion. However, the majority will say Taro Sushi in Park Slope - and they're correct - it's delicious.

    1. Second, third, and fourth Taro. Went Saturday evening and had some amazing sea eel from Tsukiji slightly grilled with a little sea salt. The horse mackerel was also unusually tasty. I haven't found a sushi bar with the combination of amazing fish and reasonable prices elsewhere in this country.

        The omakase is a great deal as well. The variety is quite impressive. Highly recommend Taro.

      2. Ki Sushi on Smith Street about two blocks from Atlantic. Kevin the sushi chef and owner has fanatstic fresh fish and great inventive rolls. Nice atmosphere, excellent service and decent portions and prices.

        1. probably not the best in brooklyn, but i would list Sushi D on Dekalb in Ft. Greene as one of the best.

          1. I would highly recommend Gen Restaurant on Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights. Excellent sushi and cooked food as well.
