Hibino vs. Osaka in Cobble Hill/CG?

HI all,

Craving some sushi for this evening. Thinking either Hibino or Osaka. I've been to Osaka and it's ok, but I was thinking of branching out, and Hibino looked good...

Thoughts anyone?

    I realize that yesterday has already passed, but I hope you went with Hibino. I think their sushi is far superior to anything else in the neighborhood, including their tofu and other cooked dishes.

    I agree tha Osaka is ok, along with Ki, but the only time I ever get from there is for delivery since Hibino does not deliver.

      Agree with fisher. Hibino is far superior in all ways. The only thing Osaka offers that Hibino does not is oversized Americanized rolls (if that is what you are looking for). Last time I was at Osaka, I didn't find it to be fresh or tasty.

        Went with Hibino and was very happy I did--the fish was great--not rubbery, tasted fresh, and the appetizers were stand-out. Many levels above Osaka, which isn't bad, but as you guys mention, just very eh.

          Good call with Hibino, healaeats! I can't speak to Osaka, but we were blown away by our meal at Hibino a few weeks back.

          Really flavorful, but light, food -- crispy green veggies simmered in dashi, inventive sushi and Osakan small plates. (Get the full details of our meal: http://bit.ly/hNnxST.

          )

          Did you try the housemade soft tofu at Hibino? That was, hands down, our favorite dish. It's served with a cold soy-dashi sauce, scallions and ginger -- a perfect balance of flavors...so mild and yet DISTINCT flavors.
