Any New Yorker who’s well versed in the art of sushi knows to head to Naomichi Yasuda’s namesake restaurant for the freshest fish in town. Open since 1999 and tucked away on a quiet street near Grand Central Terminal, the sashimi haven is now operated by the master chef’s disciples, who serve up meticulously prepared omakase that's up to Yasuda-san's standards (the proprietor moved backed to Japan a few years ago). The interior is minimal and spotless, with bamboo planks lining the floor, ceiling, and walls. We recommend sitting at the bar for the chef’s recommendations and best view of the action.
