Great sushi

laurenblok Nov 13, 2012 01:09 PM

My husband hates fish because of some childhood trauma where he was tricked into eating nasty fish. Anyway, he accidentally ate some awesome raw hamachi at Pardes last week and actually liked it. I want to take this as far as I can and take him for some awesome sushi. Any suggestions?

    I'm partial to the Prime family of sushi - the prime grill, prime at the bentley, or prime ko. they have really fresh fish and their rolls always have a good, clean taste. I really like the crispy rice spicy tuna - the different textures and flavors are amazing

      What Ahuva said. And if it's an open choice, go tot the Bentley, and distract him with the view. The great part is that you can order the sushi as an appetizer and a steak for his main. Men will do anything for a first if you promise them steak.

        I will definitely try Bentley! I have tried so many different things to get him to try sushi and no promise of steak or anything else has previously worked.

          "promise her anything, But give her Arpege"

          Showing my age, ask your mother or grandmother.

          This man will not eat fish sushi even if you promise him a steak, nor will my brother or my eldest nephew.

          But I will eat Veg rolls.

            But I can hope? And he really liked what he ate, just totally didn't understand that it was fish he was putting in his mouth!

              Like Ahuva said, go to one of the Prime restaurants. If he won't eat the sushi, appease him with a steak, and enjoy the great sushi.

                yes, you can hope. You certainly know him better than the rest of us. If you are relatively young (35 or under) he probably can expand his food likes and dislikes,
                Going to a steakhouse such as Prime and surprising him with a preordered appetizer assortment that includes sushi will help. This way he won't dwell on the menu and descriptions.

                With me it's not because the fish is raw, just I don't care for fish, period. I cook it, I smoke it, I serve it, but I don't generally eat it.
