Sushi Nanase White Plains

We enjoyed a wonderful omakase at Sushi Nanase last night. Dinner started with a poached daikon radish with miso. Next course was a variety of pickled and jellied "stuff", including mushrooms, a chestnut, and some other unremarkable but pleasant tastings. Next were four slivers of sublime raw scallop, served on a bed of shaved ice, topped with shaved truffle, sea salt and citrus juice. Next course were three tiny but delicious kumomoto oysters, again served on a bed of shaved ice, and topped with a wonderful spicy mignonette. Following was a slice of very good broiled black cod, with a wonderful crisped skin. Then came the showstopper--an assortment of as good, if not the best, sushi I've ever had. There were two types of tuna, salmon, hamachi, fluke, sweet shrimp and eel. Each fish held a small garnish, such as fish roe, gold leaf, scallions or seaweed. The wasabi was homemade and quite potent. The soy sauce, also homemade, was much less salty than commercial soy sauce, with a slight pleasant sweetness. Finally, we were served a dish of pear and ginger sorbet and mango sorbet. Although we very much enjoyed the omakase, I would just have sushi on a return visit. And just a caveat...Mr. Marge generally favors a large pasta and meat meal, and although he loved the food, he was, shall I say, still a tad hungry when we left. We will definitely return however, for by far the best sushi in Westchester.

  1. Thanks, marge--I'm saving my pennies as we speak. I love the idea of home-brewed soy sauce--commercial brands are so overpowering on delicate fish. I tend to skip it altogether.

    1. Nice review Marge. What was the cost? Were the food amounts small?

        The omakase is $85 per person, and except for the sushi, the portions were pretty small. It was a treat, but I would stick with just sushi next time. There is a minimum of $30 per person, however, the chef's assorted platter for $45 looked pretty substantial. We also had a couple sakes, of which they have an interesting assortment at $8 per.

      2. Thanks, Marge. Good to know.

        1. where in White Plains is it? Would love to try.

          1. Quick question for dolores and/or anyone else that's been to Sushi Nanase...

            Did you have a reservation?

            After many tries and getting nothing but the answering machine, I left a message requesting a reservation but they didn't call back for three days! I couldn't wait so I made other plans.

              They will not seat you without a reservation. Try calling about 5 PM. Also, they are closed on Wednesdays.
