We really like the original Domodomo in Greenwich Village, but because there are so many high-quality sushi spots in Manhattan, it only gets a fraction of the attention it deserves. In Jersey City, it stands out. They offer a big selection of nigiri sushi and hot dishes, but you should focus your attention on handrolls, like our favorite that’s packed with tender, buttery lobster. The large, attractive space, which is at the base of a high-rise that looks like an in-progress Jenga game, is a good option for a high-end date night or a sit-down lunch, when you can get five handrolls for $23 (hospitality included).
