sushi downtown sans the $$$
never done this before--but am looking for some rockin sushi without the attitude, hipster scene, and whopper price tag. anything below 23rd is preferable and in Chinatown is a plus...thoughts?
I like Tokyo Bay on Duane St - bonus is that it's a BYOB (liquor store w/good sake selection around the corner) so it's extra cheap. White tuna - if they have it - is awesome.
TOMOE on thompson st. between houston and west 3rd, but be prepared to wait.
TYPHOON on st. marks between 1st and 2nd ave.
TAKAHACHI on ave A and 5th st.
HASAKI on 9th st and 3rd ave.
Funayama on Greenwich Ave is the best balance between great fish and great prices I have found yet. The staff is attentive but not overbearing. Great place.
