Sushi

This no-reservations Japanese restaurant has been around since 1984, when it was opened by Bon Yagi -- the empire-creator behind Sobaya, Otafuku, and Sake Bar Decibel. It was one of the first sushi bars opened in the East Village and remains one of the best to this day. You can order an omakase for around $50, or stick with the consistently high-quality sashimi options. Pro-tip: it's got great lunch specials, making an afternoon trip super enticing for the particularly budget-conscious.
