Sports & Sushi - Can I have the best of both worlds at a restaurant?

Really want to go out for sushi tomorrow night.
Really want to watch the US Open/ LSUvOregon Football game/GiantsvPats Football game.

Is there a great restaurant that serves Sushi but also has multiple TV Screens?

(Prefer somewhere on the West side, but flexible.)

      The food at Tenzan is borderline edible.

        What is your pick in the UWS for casual weeknight sushi? Gari is obviously great but a little too pricey to go all the time.

          I"m the wrong person to ask. I don't eat "weeknight" sushi unless I'm forced to. I'd much rather go less frequently and eat higher quality sushi.

          On the UWS if I want sushi I go to Gari.

        FWIW - I find Tenzan to be a good "weeknight sushi" choice on the UWS. It is not as good as Yasuda / Masa level, Ushiwakamaru, Kanoyama, Gari etc. But the OP didn't ask for best sushi recs so among places with several large screens above the bar that are local (based on the OP's handle I figure he lives up here) that I get out of for $50 with a few beers Tenzan would be on the list.

        Now a bigger question is "Who eats sushi while watching football.... ?" granted it isn't cold yet and wings are not the only thing to eat... but football and sushi??

          The OP asked:

          "Is there a great restaurant that serves Sushi..."

          Tenzan is so far from a great restaurant it's not even funny. Tenzan serves crudely cut, sinew-laden slabs of low quality fish, awful rice, the lowest quality fake wasabi you can get, everything pre-packaged that they can possibly purchase....

            Personally, I think Sports goes with everything! Sushi, Wings, Burgers, Steak (maybe not tofu!)
            We were in the mood for sushi and in the mood to go out and hang out and watch some games. We actually settled for Five Napkin Burger, believe it or not. Limited Sushi (and certainly not authentic), but fresh and very interesting. And don't get me started on the Burger. It's hands down the best burger in NYC. Thanks, all

        2. I don't have a specific rec (I'm not in NY), but have a general comment. Some of the less formal, small sushi bars in my city have tvs behind the counter. If you know such a place, perhaps you could chat up the sushi chef and ask him to tun in your event (well, maybe not all three).

          When the places aren't crowded, I've sometimes been asked if there was anything that I wanted to see on tv.

          1. i'm a little late here,
            but i find amber on sixth ave around 10th street serviceable
            and they've got the tv setup you're looking for.
            -j!
