Sushi Yasuda

204 E. 43rd St.
New York , NY , United States
(212) 972-1001

One of New York City’s most pared-down and traditional sushi restaurants is also one of its best. Though founding chef Naomichi Yasuda returned to Tokyo in 2010, his protégé Mitsuru Tamura continues to make nigiri and maki sushi that follow the classic minimalist model—no mayo or cream cheese-stuffed rolls, no jalapeño garnishes or troughs of soy sauce. The best seats are at the bamboo counter, where you can watch chefs deftly cut each piece of fish, taking into account everything from diners’ tastes to the shape of their mouths.
