Best not-necessarily-authentic sushi, UES?

So sue me, I like "crazy" sushi -- interesting maki combinations, weird sauces, and all. Most of the sushi posts I've seen here are about the more authentic sushi, which I do enjoy, but my heart belongs to crazy maki.

Now that I've outed myself as a sushi Philistine, where can I go to get my fix on the Upper East Side? I'm leaving my beloved borough of Brooklyn (where I've been a devotee of Osaka and Cube 63 for a while) for the east '80s and I'm hoping I can find rolls there that I like as much as the ones I get here in Brooklyn.

Atmosphere totally irrelevant. To me it's all about the food.

    I'm not a crazy sushi person. But you might as well give Yuka a try. They might not have super crazy rolls, but they've got an all you can eat special for about $20. It's pretty good for what it is. Go early, it gets packed. When you're in the mood for good sushi and sashimi, try Inase.
