    Answer is not really. Stick with Manhattan.

      An unfortunate truth.

      Although I would say Taro is pretty good (and not Manhattan prices).

        we were underwhelmed by Taro's omakase, though the price was certainly right. It was a regular old weekday. The board has only good things to say, is it worth another shot? Anything special to order, code word or something? :D

          Have gone a few times. No special order. But, we do go on Friday or Saturday when they get their shipment from the Tsukiji fish market. Thus, they have the biggest and freshest selections those days.

            FYI Taro seems to be in the process of moving up to the space at the SE corner of St. Marks Ave and Flatbush (former Dunkin Donuts), next to the Farm/Barn. Dont know when.

        maybe in Long Island you can get it. I haven't had luck here.

          See these 2 threads (second one refers to Manhattan):
