This minimalist sushi restaurant has gained a loyal following at both its Chelsea and Upper West Side locations among neighborhood regulars who know that the go-to order is the spicy tuna crispy rice. On a scale of one to 10, where one is the sushi restaurant you only know from Seamless and 10 is upscale omakase, Momoya is a six. The space is casual but not so casual that you'd rather eat at home, and the sushi and sashimi options are traditional, thoughtful, and above all, fresh. The drink menu, too, is far from basic with a wide variety of sake and wine.
