Seeking not the best sushi in the west village

Everyone wants to go to 15 east...I'm seeking everyone's suggestions for decent low and mid priced sushi in the west village and central village.

Used to get my fix at Cotan in the east village but they're gone and I have to fill a void. Kawa on Hudson is meh...was hoping to hear if anyone else had some ideas.

      Aside from Soto's well documented intesnity ... I am not sure i would put his restaurant in this category. i consider his sushi to be excellent and while very reasonably priced for what it is - not inline with what the OP was asking for.

      Perhaps a place like Tomoe might fit the bill - as would Dojo.

        Unless they've made a turnaround, the fish at Tomoe is horrible, I really wouldn't recommend it.

          I went last week - for the price point - i'm quite comfortable with it

    2. I always order delivery from Sushi West. I've never been to the restaurant so can't speak for atmosphere or service. Delivery is very prompt. The fish is always extremely fresh, and portions are pretty generous for the low price.

          1. I walked by Miyabi, in Cotan's old space in the West Village, and in the window was pictures of the owner of Cotan from the E. Village, seems like a former employee of Cotan bought the place. Not sure how the sushi is though.

              ill check out miyabi...on west 3rd off 6th? i think i ate there a few years ago. couldve sworn the owner at the time taught the chef at jewel bako and now 15 east.

              i go to ushiwakamaru often but was looking for a place where i can get sushi for $25-45 rather than $45-75.
