Fun, hip sushi place

Looking for a fun, hip sushi restaurant that has good food too. Want a place that a couple of girlfriends would enjoy on a night out without the men.

Thanks in advance.

        Have you been recently? Because I went to Avenue A about a year ago: the fish was waaaaay past fresh, the service was both distracted and surly, and the place didn't look particularly clean. I haven't been back, although I used to go there a lot, many years ago, when the techno music they play at top volume was new. Has it, perhaps, improved?

          I agree with Small H. Last couple times i went the fish was not in it's prime thus i stopped going

        There's a place across the street from Coppola's on 3rd Avenue between 27th & 28th Streets. It's semi new...Two floors..The name escapes me.

        There's also:

          Amberjack? Haven't been, so can't comment on the food, but looks busy whenever I've walked past.

      3. Sushi Samba on 7th Avenue.

        1. Thanks for the recommendations so far - I should also add - late 30s and also want a good neighborhood. I was thinking of Morimoto-type place but I just don't think their sushi is great

          1. kanoyama on 11th and 2nd

            if sushi isn't the primary desire matsuri on w 19th but they are about the food not the sushi, like morimoto

              I don't consider kanoyama as hip at all!

            2. Matsuri is probably the best you can do food and scene-wise. Enjoy!
