Sushi Restaurant - Nice, not uber $$$ & quiet?

newbiechick Dec 8, 2007 05:50 PM

Hi All -

I am taking a romantic interest to out for a birthday dinner. Any sushi recommendations (sushi is their fave)? Price isn't limited, as long as it's not astronomical. I am open to all areas in Manhattan but am hoping the place be somewhat intimate allows for conversation without screaming over the background noise.

Thanks in advance!

    15 East would be the perfect choice...great food in an awesome atmosphere.

      i was toying with 15 east & yasuda. which do you think is best for omakase? is it hard to get a reservation at either place for a weeknight at the bar?

        Just an FYI - Yasuda is uber $$$$. Worth it but doesn't really fit your description. Omakase is $125-200 /pp.

          yeah, i can swing $125 but $200pp is a little steep for me.

          ok, here's the deal. i like sushi - but i'm (obviously) not an extreme, all-knowing sushi eater. the birthday boy, however, is. is there a place where we would both feel comfortable?

          i'd like a nice place, with fresh fish. i'm not looking for a place to see and be seen, but also want it to be memorable and special.

          i'll take all the help i can get ;)
