New York City sushi rightly enjoys a reputation as some of the best in the country. After all, the city sits at a major crossroads by land, air, and sea, collecting both fine ingredients and people with the talent to prepare them. The criteria for what, exactly, makes the best sushi in NYC varies from person to person, though. Sushi fanatics and bucket-listers recommend Masa, a Michelin-starred eatery where uni shares the menu with shabu-shabu pots brimming with foie gras and fresh lobster. For a more affordable option, though, look no further than the Sushi Yasaka menu; the Manhattan eatery supplies quick fixes of fresh fish with a succinct list of 26 beloved maki and 8 signature rolls.
