Known For

Sushi

For chef Yoichi Akashi, who previously served as chef de cuisine at Sushi Nakazawa, sushi is an art and his self-titled West Village restaurant is a shrine to it. The 10-seat sushi counter is where you want to be for the 20 courses of top-tier fish sourced from Japan and the States. Akashi specializes in kappo-style omakase, so expect not only raw plates, but a chef's choice of stewed and fried morsels, too. Dinner at this sleek 500sqft restaurant is expensive, but worth it.
