If you want to metamorphosize from an average New Yorker to an average New Yorker who has tasted seared salmon that was flown in from Tokyo the night before and topped with fried onions, come to this little spot on Flatbush. The sushi omakase experience at Sushi Lin is incredible - and so reasonably priced ($60 for 10 very special pieces), you feel like you’re in on a secret. Don’t leave without trying the salmon nigiri topped with sauteed tomato, or the bluefin tuna with mushroom.
