Wokuni is a big Japanese restaurant a few blocks south of Grand Central, and the main draw here is the sushi and sashimi. The fish is high-quality, and this is the perfect sort of place for a nice meal with a coworker or a dinner with your aunt before a show at Radio City. It’s also not outrageously expensive - sushi and sashimi combos start at $29, and the best move is to get one of those. If you’d like to supplement your main course, we highly recommend an additional order of salmon sashimi and/or a couple of the tender chicken yakitori skewers.
