1. Neta 61 W 8th St, New York, NY 10011 (West Village)

There's a minimalist air to Neta in the West Village, which makes it all the easier to focus on the impeccable fresh flavors. Neta, which literally translates to "the fresh ingredients of sushi," is run by two former head chefs at New York sushi megahouse Masa -- and you can taste their experience (as well as see it in the prices). Daily omakase menus -- plates picked by the chef and eaten at a counter overlooking his work station -- are the ultimate indulgence. Otherwise, a la carte options will do: be it any of the small plates, a full sushi selection, or playful desserts like bay leaf-infused creme brûlée.
