Sushi By Bou
The team behind Sushi by Bou runs a bunch of restaurants (Chemistry Room, Sushi Lab, and Omakaseed, to name a few), but their tiny underground bar in Times Square is our favorite of the bunch. Here, you’ll settle in for a rapid-fire $50 12-piece omakase that’s guaranteed to be over in 30 minutes, which makes it an ideal choice for pre-theater dining. The pieces are straightforward, the fish is high quality, and the space feels like a cool teenager converted their parents’ garage into a secret restaurant.
