I know there's a row of Japanese restaurants between 5th and 6th on 55, Which do you recommend?

    Go to Sushi Den down the block on 49th btw 5th and 6th. It's a good sign a sushi place is authentic when 70%+ of their clientele are Japanese businessmen. I recommend it, more "New School" sushi leaning than "Old school."

      I am very fond of the ramen at Menchanko Tei, where I go for lunch a few times a month. Sometimes the shrimp is a little squishy, but other than that I have nothing but good things to say about it.

        Go just slightly west (2 blocks) to Yakitori Toto, which is better than any of the places between 5th and 6th.
