Tataki is in Tribeca, so it’s a good, inexpensive alternative to your bi-annual Sugarfish lunch. The menu has a bunch of outrageously named rolls, including the Naughty Girl (which is wrapped in pink soy paper) and the After Sex roll (which has king crab and costs $20). Instead of those, we’d suggest sticking to basic things like the salmon rolls and some really good gyoza.
