    Walk in, sit at the counter instead of the dining room at this elegant Japanese restaurant near Union Square. Let Masa, the chef, do his thing. Go by yourself, so you can really focus on the food. Read more

    A great place to order the omakase while sitting at the sushi bar to get a little bit of everything. It's not cheap, but it's well worth it.

    Yes this place is crazy expensive, but the quality of the sushi ranks in the top 5 in the city. The weekday lunch special allows even the most common of us to sample their fare (in small quantities..)

    Order the Botanebi (sweet shrimp), and you are guaranteed to come back. Not only can you taste the freshness and quality in the shrimp, but it’s that sweetness that makes it stand out from the rest.

    Awesome sushi and soba. The omakase menu is supposed to be excellent, too. We didn't love the more traditional, western items, including the cherry wood smoked duck ($32 ). Read more

    At 15 East, the sushi is as clean-cut as the sleek, white interior. Try the omakase (“I’ll leave it to you”), for ten pieces of chef-selected sashimi. Tuna fiends can delight in a flight.

    Cold soba with salmon roe: The firm, chewy buckwheat noodles arrive in a pool of umami-rich broth with a touch of fresh wasabi and spring onions. Splurge on giant pearls of salmon roe. Read more

    Do the omokase if possible. Also they have great yellowtail sashimi plate. Surprise dish: lobster uni risotto - must try. SO buttery and creamy and the uni really shined through.

    Get the sushi omakase and make sure the shrimp and king salmon are in the mix. End on the yuzu soufflé...will leave you feeling satisfied and refreshed!

    I discover 15East last year in it was one of my favorite in NYC. One year later they lost creativity, the service became usual... Just the price doesn't change! What happened 15east ?

    Masato Shimizu employs first-rate seafood flown in from Japan, deftly molding lightly torched golden-eye snapper or luscious soy-lacquered cherry salmon on beds of loose toothsome grains. Read more

    The room, designed by architect Richard Bloch (Masa), feels like a sanctuary, and the food (fittingly) has a near-religious following among raw fish fanatics. Read more

    The omakase focuses on sushi and sashimi of high quality, like tender octopus, creamy toro, & seared isaki (grunt fish). – Green Guide Editor

    Very good high end sushi. Slightly over priced. Good tuna and if they have fresh uni, that's a must have.

    The tasting menu is good (but expensive for students at $120 per person), and the fish is very, very fresh. Also, the service is fantastic!
