Pink Nori serves affordable sushi and Japanese small plates just off Steinway Street, a couple blocks from the Broadway N/W. The all-white space has tables along the wall, a bar up front, and a chef’s counter towards the back. You can do full dinner here and get a bunch of inexpensive sashimi (15 pieces for $18), but Pink Nori may be best for a few rolls during happy hour, when beers and sake are $3.

Trattoria L’icontro is not only awesome, but worthy of a trip to Astoria with a group of your friends. Everything about the space is thoroughly cheesy and overstated, but that’s kind of the whole point. No gimmicks, just really good Italian food and really nice people.
"NO MENUS. JUST FISH" is pretty much everything you need to know about this Astoria restaurant.

Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill
Somehow, the Blue Ribbon brand’s new spot is just as excellent as its other outposts, despite being in a Midtown hotel. This place is, however, insanely expensive.
How much will you like the West Village's Sushi Nakazawa? How much money do you have, and how recently did you watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi?
Sushi Of Gari Tribeca
For us, there are few culinary pleasures in life that exceed sushi bar swagging at Sushi of Gari, watching an old master fish sculptor slice up some heavenly creations destined for our bellies. Unfortunately, this Gari location is our least favorite yet.

Everyone has a favorite neighborhood sushi spot and, if you live in Chelsea, there’s a good chance yours is Momoya.
Kanoyama serves some of the best sushi you’ll find for the money in the East Village, and maybe all of Manhattan.
The neighborhood sushi joint of the East Village, Takahachi is affordable and filled with regulars.
Waiting in a line outside of any restaurant seems a bit silly to us, but Tomoe is arguably one of the best sushi restaurants in the city, as you will see by those patiently standing single file out front on most nights. And it certainly isn't the atmosphere that's got people queued up on Thompson Street. The place is a dump.
