Venue Info

The hip hop blaring from the speakers is antithetical to New York Sushi Ko’s elegant Omakase style dining, but then again, nothing about this Lower East Side sushi spot is conventional. Chef John Daley breaks away from tradition in both technique and presentation at his eight-seat counter, where he serves his modern prix fixe menu with panache. There are two tiers for omakase at lunch, and one for dinner (the a la carte menu is only available to walk-ins, and only after a certain time), where your meal and experience are in Daley’s tatted hands. He sources ingredients from famed Japanese fish markets, evident in both taste and price point (we give you full permission to splurge on the finest fish in the world, if you can get a seat).
