Authentic Sushi

I am searching for a sushi place, preferably hole-in-the-wall, that serves authentic sushi - no rolls, no crazy sauces, or deep-fried fish, mayo etc.... Just fresh nigiri and sashimi.
Oh, is run by Japanese people (not Korean, Chinese, Malaysian..)
Can anyone kindly share?

      1. Sushisay on East 51st St. All Japan trained chefs. This is where the Japanese business men go. Some of the best sushi in NYC.

          Is it still there? I thought it has closed ....

          1. re: MMRuth

            Not in the new Zagat so likely has closed.

            Sushiden on east 49th might be what you are looking for..

          2. re: chefstu

            it closed but was replaced by the similar Sushi Ann.

            everyone recommends Sushi Yasuda.

          3. Inase on 1586 1st Ave between 82nd and 83rd. Every time I've been there the diners have been almost exclusively japanese. As is the sushi chef/owner and all the staff.

            1. Sushi Yasuda!
              Kuruma Zushi - terrible decor, AMAZING fish. Bring extra $$$
