If someone played a large-scale game of NYC Operation, Haru would go right in the Times Square heart spot. There are a few locations of this sushi mini-chain around the city, and the food here is reliably good (but it probably won’t be the highlight of your evening). All in all, Haru is one of your better options for a group dinner this close to the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

All observations about the clientele aside, Nobu 57 is still a pretty damn good meal. It’s hard not to love those classic dishes, as long as you can swallow the hefty price tag.
