If you’re looking for very good sushi in a cool space, then sit in the small dining room at Jewel Bako, which looks like a dimly-lit subway tunnel. Share some appetizers and the surprisingly affordable entrees - $38 gets you eight pieces of sushi or sashimi along with a special roll and soup. If you want a more serious sushi experience, you can do the chef’s omakase at the sushi bar. This is some of the best sushi in the East Village, and works well for date night.

15 East

15 East is an expensive sushi spot near Union Square. It works for a quiet, upscale meal in the area.

Neta

There are some incredible things to eat at Neta, but there are also some duds on the menu. It’s probably a much better experience if you have endless money to spend. Then again, so is everything.
