Sushi Yasuda

I am taking my dad to Yasuda for lunch on Friday for a Chanukkah gift splurge. Does anyone have any recommendations/recent experiences that they would like to share? We definitely want to have the toro tasting, as my dad is a huge fan, but what else?

Thanks in advance and happy holidays!

  1. Just make sure to get whatever the chef recommends that night. It will be incredibly fresh and delicious.

    1. re: bladerobbins

      I found the oysters particularly good there.

    2. The selection of different types of eel was really interesting and different than other eel I had had elsewhere. The Russian uni was wonderful. Salmon tasting was also great when I went--particularly King salmon, with white flesh. Agree with the oyster--sushi topped with some sea salt. You can't really go wrong with anything they recommend.

      1. Try their vanilla ice cream for dessert. It is delicious. Hope you are sitting in front of Yasuda at the bar btw.

        1. Uni, uni, uni, uni...and then for dessert-uni!

          1. Request to sit at the bar in front of Chef Yasuda and have him to serve you whatever he wants. Best, and only, way to do it.
