Sushiden on Madison. She does realize that it's an old school restaurant but she said she gets the best quality for the money. Funny because I tried to go there a few weeks ago for my coworker's b'day lunch but 'kicked' out because we didn't have a reservation by a rude staff.
Really odd, I've never made a reservation for lunch at the Madison location. I agree the FOH is a bit rude sometimes. Still the best Chirashi and futomaki in all of NYC. I've yet to have sushi there and I've been going there for years.
Sushiden is great. Two of the young chef's there were trained by Mr. Nakajima until he left for Shinbashi.
One was just hired away to work for Robuchon in Monaco. He is that good.
just because a person is Japanese doesn't mean they have good taste in Japanese food - and doesn't mean they have your taste in Japanese food.
I'd just laugh off getting kicked out, and ask them politely if there's a good day to walk in.
