Where we've featured it
We often speak about the various categories of sushi establishments. There’s the top tier, most suitable for times you just got a holiday bonus and where the chef will get mad if you taint his fish with extra soy sauce. And of course, there’s the bottom tier: the places we order “Special B” from on Seamless and hope for the best, knowing the best is probably not what’s about to arrive. In the middle are places like Sushi Damo: reliable, serviceable spots where the rolls are probably wrapped in avocado and topped with two sauces. This one’s pretty sleek, and not cheap, but a solid deal considering the neighborhood.
Sushi Damo is Midtown sushi’s Brendan Fraser. Is it anyone’s favorite place? No, and if The Mummy is anyone’s favorite movie, we need to have a talk about that. This is a nice and sleek, but not fancy spot where you can get some special rolls wrapped in avocado and topped with caviar and wasabi mayo and the like. Use it if you need a meal near Columbus Circle.
You could eat the leftover baby spinach salad for lunch. Or you could order sushi rolls and pork katsu from Sushi Damo on UberEats every day starting at noon.
