Are there any decent restaurants that serve sushi made with brown rice?

Anywhere in Manhattan, any price point. Thanks in advance!

    I've had pretty good brown rice sushi at Haru on Park and 18th street. Hiro in the East Village 10th street also has brown rice sushi (though it has no ambience, more of a take out delivery place)

      I've had great sushi made w/ brown rice at Tenzan, 2nd Ave btw 52/53. Reasonably priced, fresh and the atmosphere is great, too.

        haven't been there in a long time so i don't know how the quality is these days, but Sushi Sen-Nin used to be my go-to brown rice sushi spot when i lived in the neighborhood

          Nomado 33 on 33rd between 2nd and 3rd. Always fresh fish and great every time. They will make any roll they have with brown rice if you ask for it.

            just a heads-up that Nomado is actually between Third & Lex.

            Thank you, friends! I'm trying to avoid white rice so your recommendations are invaluable. I will think of you when I am having my sushi! :-)

              If I remember correctly all of the sushi at Rockmeisha is made with brown rice. It is really good, too.

                In case this comes up in a search, I am happy to report that I had brown rice sushi at Fusha (58th and 1st) and it was delicious.
