Lobster Sashimi

Hi. I'm looking for a restaurant with great Lobster Sashimi with romantic atmosphere with reservation capabilities. I'm not familiar with NYC, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

        I was going to recommend Bond Street too.

      I believe it's always available at Blue Ribbon Sushi.

        Yes, but I hear Blue Ribbon doesn't take reservation. It's for his birthday, and I didn't want to make him stand in line...

        it's not romantic in the traditional sense, but Ushi Wakamaru has lobster sashimi -- i watched the chef Hideo-san take apart a live one w/ his bare hands the other night...the vibe is sort of mellow there, sometimes mostly Japanese customers, traditional sushi, a simple room...but the sushi is fantastic, and i've had many a romantic evening that started there, followed up dessert&drinks at somewhere more cozy like Angel's Share or Raoul's...

          UshiWakamaru does sound very nice. Do they usually have lobster or was that the special? I didn't see it on their regular menu.

            Not sure, but they have a big tank there, so i imagine it's regularly available...you could call and ask...212-228-4181...

              There's usually lobster in the tank, but it's not a guarantee. I typically give the chef free reign to serve whatever he would like and, on a few occasions, he's ripped apart a lobster for me (for a single piece of nigiri -- I'm not sure who gets the rest). I've certainly seen the tank empty, though.
