Sushi With Outdoor Seating?

xeniadog May 16, 2010 01:06 PM

Are there any places in the city with outdoor sushi?
Good sushi. And not Sushi Samba's roof

Could be in BK too if worth the trip & has fresh fish.

    Okay thanks for the recs. I do know and love quality sushi and 90% of my sushi visits are at the counter, but there are these occasional moments that I know will come up in the summer where myself or a friend says "don't you wish we knew a good spot for sushi outside?" so that's why I want to know.

    Will def check Shinbasi & Sachiko.
    Heard good things about Sachiko here and there.

    And yes, Haru doesn't count. Overpriced, annoying scene and nothing special about the fish or sourcing at all.

      I believe Sachiko's on Clinton has a garden. I personally have not been there, but other people on this board have mentioned it. Some people like their sushi, others do not. Maybe they're a little inconsistent.

        One of the best in NYC: Shinbashi on 48th between 5th and Madison.

              Not yet, but have walked by many times and seen the outdoor tables and I trust sushiman's sushi cred with 100% certainty and I understand the chef's experience.

              Planning to go very soon - just a very busy time of year for me. (sushiman pls email me from my profile)

              I will reserve a seat at the bar with Mr. Nakajima, and plan to spend plenty of time and money.

            Haru is not good. It's overpriced and mediocre. Choshi on Irving Place is a bit better (and cheaper, certainly), and it does have outdoor seating.

            Good sushi is served at a sushi bar. And they are not outside.
