Kuruma Zushi

7 E. 47th St. , Second Fl.
New York , NY , United States
(212) 317-2802

Keep a careful eye out for the entrance to this sushi haven in Midtown. With just a small sign and a door, chef Toshihiro Uezo’s restaurant is unassuming in nearly every way, with none of the bling of his trendier neighbors, just a classic red and black lacquered bar and a few Japanese accents. The sushi, however, is anything but unassuming. For 38 years, Uezo has been serving what many consider the best in the city—from translucent fluke rectangles in a tart ponzu sauce to very fatty tuna and yellowtail with scallions. The bill will bring you down to Earth, however.
