Best Sushi: BK Heights/Cobble/Boerum/Carroll

Recently moved to Brooklyn Heights and am looking for the best sushi in the area (I'm only a few minutes walk to Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill and Carroll Gardens, so those areas too). I've tried Migita on Montague which was alright at best. I figure there's got to be something good on Court or Smith...any suggestions? Thanks

  1. Cube 63 - Court and Baltic. They have a nice garden out back too.

      1. I really liked Ki Sushi the one time I tried it, and it seems to get good reviews here. Taro just off 5th Ave is a bit more of a walk, but I think it's worth it. And they delivered to me when I lived in Boerum Hill, so they might deliver to you too.

        1. Taro gets excellent reviews. Hibino has high quality suchi as well. I have heard some good things about Ki Sushi but will not eat there as they serve Bluefin Tuna and Chilean Sea Bass, both of which are being overfished to extinction.

          1. re: deepyarn

            Taro (Bergen just off of Flatbush) is really the only good sushi place I've been to in the non-Manhattan boroughs.

              Seconded, and it's only a block and a half from the border of Boerum Hill (assuming 4th Ave. as the demarcation line.) Hibino also has very high quality fish, but it's mainly for sushi and sashimi - I don't think they have many rolls outside of a futomaki.

          2. Iron Chef House on Clark St (BK Heights) is pretty good for a neighborhood place.

              Taro is a trek outside the criteria, but worth it. I have lived in CG for 7 years, and only go to Taro after trying most places around. However, I have not been to Cube 63.

                I think Iron Chef House used to be good about 3 years ago... my last few visits have left me with a very bad taste in my mouth. The quality of the food seems to have dropped significantly. I used to love their spicy tuna roll (very nicely presented with some sauce drizzled over top and black sesame sprinkled around.) But the last time I ordered it, the rice was near stale and fridge cold, and it was present in a mundane 6 piece manner.

                Broke my heart, but I guess all good things eventually come to an end.
