At Sushi By Bou, they’ll only hold your seat for two minutes after your reservation time, and you have exactly 30 minutes to enjoy your $50, 12-piece omakase. That may sound more stressful than getting through airport security when you’re late to your flight, but once you sit down, Sushi By Bou actually feels like breezing through with TSA Precheck. The whole meal is paced so that as soon as you finish one piece, you’re handed the next. It doesn’t feel rushed - just efficient. And the omakase itself is great, with a range of fish and preparations. We like the West 20th location of Bou, located speakeasy-style in a bar above a restaurant called Jue Lan Club, but there’s another location in Midtown as well. All you have to do to make a reservation at either location is text them day-of. In the summer months, they also have a highly pleasant outdoor sushi bar popup.

abcV is Jean-Georges’ third restaurant inside of the ABC Carpet & Home furniture store, and this one is all vegetarian. It’s also the best.
I once saw a man at Shake Shack, dressed in a suit and setting a formal table. On the small metal table he placed a white tablecloth, fine silverware, a candle, and some flowers. For a moment, I was overcome with joy at the beautiful event that was about to unfold before me...this man was about to propose to a burger.

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.
