Looking for a Wonderful Japanese Restaurant in the West or East Village

haraliyaviner Jan 26, 2014 04:38 AM

A friend of mine - who is an artist from Germany - is visiting me this week. She is very creative and loves great food. Looking for suggestions for a wonderful Japanese restaurant for this afternoon in the Village. Yakitori, Sushi, or any other form of Japanese Cuisine would be fine. A lovely atmosphere would be nice - but is not required. Price does not matter.
Thank you for helping us with Japanese foods!

        If it has to be today (Sunday afternoon), try Cha-An in the East Village. It's a Japanese tea house.

        If price doesn't matter and you want a lovely atmosphere, give Kyo Ya a call as soon as you can and see if they can squeeze you in at 6:30pm Monday (tomorrow).

              for the Monday dinner, consider Sobakoh in the East Village on 5th St

                Soto or Neta in W.V. Just go with the omakase.

                      just wanted to give my 2 cents on sushi dojo...not a fan.

                      the rice isn't constructed well, the quality of fish wasn't as good as it should be given the accolades it receives and i just dont think id return.

                      im sticking with ushiwakamaru.
