  1. Not really.

    Affordability varies drastically across Manhattan dwellers.

    When it comes to sushi, good can refer to either the quality of the fish itself, or the freshness of the incoming supply and turnover.

    1. Yeah, affordable means all kinds of different things to different people. A budget / price range might be helpful. If you care to share...

        well, lets just say with $100.00 bucks, can me and my lady get some good eats?

        1. re: wordong

          No. Might as well get burgers and spend the rest at the bar

          1. re: wordong

            $50pp before tax and tip? Or after? Does that include any drinks or sake?

            I assume you want high quality nigiri sushi, not maki rolls.

            1. re: kathryn

              before tax and tip.... no drinks...

                Try Inase on the Upper east side. you can definitely get in and out of there for 100/couple. If you can bump that to $60 each before tax/tip they have an omakase that is really a great deal at $60.

                here is a link to a review.

                  Or Gajyumaru.

        2. I think if you don't do a la carte, you can make your budget at most places. For example, according to menupages, Ushiwakamaru has "sushi deluxe" that consists of 8 pieces and 1 roll for $20.

          2. I suggest Hatsuhana in midtown.
            You could each do an appetizer and sushi deluxe (10 pcs+ 1 roll) for less than $50 each. Before tip and without drinks.
            They also have Prix Fixe for less, soup or salad, an assortment of six pieces of sushi and your choice of two rolls from the sushi list, plus dessert. $27.00. Id guess you can order an appetizer or additional pieces if that wasn't enough.

            1. Do you like traditional sushi or the more Americanized rolls?

              1. Kanoyama is probably your best bet. The sushi (rice) is not perfect as it is too long grain and too loosely packed, but the fish is much better than average. I have not had good sushi at Ushiwakamaru, except in its first year, even when eating at the bar.
