Sushi or Asian near Carnegie Hall
Any suggestions for sushi and/or asian food near Carnegie Hall. Not too pricey. Thanks!
Can you define "not too pricey"?
What's your budget per person for JUST food?
It's a pricey neighborhood, to start with...
My usual is Ma Peche, where small dishes are $9-16 and large dishes are $16-32.
Katsu Hama - cutlets and ramen
Ma Peche - Vietnamese fusion
Sugiyama - kaiseki
Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill - the sushi isn't stellar but the cooked dishes are quite good
Sushi of Gari - the west 46th street branch is about a 10-12 minute walk from Carnegie Hall
Some people like Joe's Shanghai, Chom Chom, Lili's 57, and Tang Pavilion though I've had mixed experiences during my infrequent visits.
I especially like Tang Pavillion (Shanghai) on 55th between 5th and 6th. It's my usual place before Carnegie Hall. Delicious food, nice upscale atmosphere, and not pricey for the neighborhood.
Not sushi, but if you like Sichuan-style food, Szechuan Gourmet has a branch at 56th St. between Broadway and 8th, and it's one of the best Sichuan places in Manhattan. Just stick to Sichuan-style dishes, none of the American-Chinese things. Though some of their vegetable dishes that might not be obviously Sichuan-style, like their bak choy sauteed with garlic, are terrific. Depending on your appetite (dishes are large), expect to spend around $25-30 person, inclusive of tax and tip.
