Ever since this LA transplant made its way to New York, we’ve been fans. Even with the nonstop proliferation of sub-$100 omakases, this spot still offers one of the best values in the category. But Sugarfish doesn’t take reservations, and, even at lunchtime, the downtown locations can require a bold standoff with the host and an hour-long wait. Not so at the Midtown West outpost, where you can pretty much waltz in, sit down, and drown your weekday sorrows in massive quantities of high-quality raw fish. Choose one of the “trust me” options, put your phone on DND, and enjoy a rare moment of true relaxation in the middle of a New York City workday.
