To put it simply, this is some of the finest fish in all of Manhattan. Sushi of Gari's $50 Omakase is as visually stimulating as sushi can get. This isn't just fish on top of rice - no, no. Each piece is prepared like its own entree- stacked, coated, and finished with different ingredients. The wow factor, both for your eyes and mouth, is worth the price of admission. Don't even bother scouring the menu to figure out what to order. It's all about the omakase and, we promise, you won't be disappointed.
Manhattan's midsection is loaded with Japanese restaurants...most of which suck. Speaking of suck, restaurant row on 46th Street is filled entirely with overpriced tourist fodder, but don't be fooled; Sushi of Gari is as legit as they come. Next time Mom needs some Pre-Theater Eats, impress her with a trip to Gari 46. Plus, if you work in Midtown and ever want to treat yourself to a fine meal while sitting at your desk, Gari delivers, and delivers well.
One of Gari's signature apps, if you dig tempura, absolutely order their lightly deep fried shrimp and vegetable tempura dish to share.
Up the ante on standard miso soup and try Gari's hamaguri - a fish broth with little neck clams and scallion. It's excellent.
A standout appetizer, these crab dumplings are worth an order for the table.
Gari's signature. This is the reason why you're coming here. The chef's daily selection of fresh, seasonal, sushi and sashimi. Don't even think about being a wuss and ordering sushi by the unit. It'll wind up being more expensive and nowhere near as amazing, I promise. The Omakase is exactly what you need. It's $50 well spent as you'll be thinking about it for days to come. Although the rotation changes everyday, here are some of our favorite preparations we've seen more than once: Salmon with Broiled Tomato, Tuna with Tofu, Red Snapper with Salad, and, our favorite, Yellowtail with jalapeño.
