  1. There is nothing like Sushi Yasuda in Brooklyn or Queens.

    1. JJ's in Astoria

      Zenkichi in Williamsburg

      They are your best bets for sushi in the boroughs.

      Jj's tuna sashimi with arugula is wonderful as is their tuna sashimi with crisp apple and wasabi

        Zenkichi does not serve sushi.

            I was interested in this. As its website says:

            Q: Why is there no sushi on the menu?
            A: Sushi is a completely different category of Japanese cuisine from the Tokyo-style small plates Zenkichi specializes in. We believe that fully focusing on our specialty will help maintain the quality of our food, and hope that not serving sushi would entice more people to explore Japanese cuisine beyond sushi.

      2. Katsuno.

        The guy who owns this place also owns Seo in the city. He happens to live in Forest Hills and he personally operates this restaurant daily. The sushi and sashimi here rivals the best I have had anywhere in the world.

          yes, this place is absolutely amazing - fish quality is extremely high, making me realize that whatever i've been eating in midtown for lunch is generally garbage (and for that matter, most anywhere else in brooklyn for delivery). also, the cold onsen egg was perfect on a hot summer evening.

          the salmon sashimi is something i frequently think about, meaning - it's time to go back for another visit. good thing my folks are still in the area.

        2. we love Takara in Whitestone on 14th street, VERY good

          1. Taro and Ki in Brooklyn both have very high-quality sushi. Delicious.

              i don't think ki is anywhere near as good as the better manhattan places.
