Not sure why it took us two years to dine chez Sasabune on the East Coast, maybe it was because we weren’t committed to living here. But NYC it is and Sushi Sasabune is as good, if not better (the people are a nicer here) as in LA. The place is reminiscent of the Saltair location, intimate, comfortable sushi bar and the “Trust me” sign looms overhead. At least four iterations of tuna, one from Italy, another Albacore, warmed our insides, soothed our souls. The blue crab hand roll was icing on the palate, preceded by Washington state oysters and fluke from Long Island. The presentations were perfect, the greeting cordial and we can’t wait to return. Prices were a bit steeper than LA but it’s our new favorite restaurant, certainly best sushi we’ve had in town. Kenji, the sushi master, was trained in LA by Nobi,moved East to open the east 73rd street (at 1st avenue) location and we are SO happy to have him.
