There are always new omakase options in NYC, but it’s harder to find sushi openings that focus on high-quality, relatively affordable stuff (read: under $50 per person). Gouie falls into this bucket, and it’s a spot anybody should try if they like raw fish. Their sweeping counter in The Market Line on the LES not only fills a large, sushi-related hole in said market, but they also have a $30, seven-piece-and-half-roll special that’s just that: special (and not only because of the price point). All the fish you’ll try here is buttery, the rice is seasoned with just a kiss of vinegar, and the roll that accompanies the special comes filled with a crunchy braised gourd that tastes kind of funky and sweet. The service here is excellent as well — you might even get an impromptu sake tasting while you wait for a seat.
