If you’re the type of person who spends 15 minutes in the cereal aisle trying to decide between the one with the Dracula mascot and the one with the bunny, then you may have some trouble with the very long menu at Ootoya. This Japanese spot in Chelsea serves everything from yakitori to sushi to soba to hot pot, but our favorite part of the menu is the selection of rice bowls. We recommend the one with a few different grilled skewers, including two of the best options from the yakitori section, the chicken meatball and thigh. There are a bunch of bar seats that work for a solo lunch or dinner, but the big, two-floor space is best with a group, when you can try more things.

Kanoyama serves some of the best sushi you’ll find for the money in the East Village, and maybe all of Manhattan.
