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.

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.
