What's the best sushi restaurant I can actually get into?

Hi, having dinner with friends tomorrow night (Fri, 1/3) who have requested sushi. What is the best sushi place that I can actually get a reservation at with 1 day notice for a table of four? Thanks!

  1. Via a quick Open Table search:
    You could get into one of the Sushi of Gari branches, I think the upper east side one remains the best, but the others are also good, albeit "modern-style" and expensive.
    Shinbashi also has tables, as does Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya

    1. You could get on the waitlist for Sushi Nakazawa. You might get lucky with a cancellation, which happened to me though unfortunately it was too late to change my plans.

        1. with the snow storm, I bet ya a lot of people will cancel their reservations at top places.
          Should call all the places tonight and find out.

          1. And if you want a table vs sitting at counter, probably a lot of places.
