Casual place, but super delicious. Be prepared to wait for a table, but it's worth it! Spicy tuna tartare was incredible.

The quality of the sushi here is very good. The sushi is so fresh and the price is reasonable. With the exception of the price it reminded me of eating sushi in Japan.

I came here thanks to a friend living locally. Apparently good and fresh sushi can be much more expensive in NY, so I take that $90, including 20% tips is a good deal. Waiting time without reservation on Friday night was 10 minutes. The food...More

It's always a good sign when a restaurant is heaving with locals. Takahachi on Avenue A in LES just north of East Houston is such a place. Couples, hipsters, families mix comfortably. The atmosphere is noisy and buzzing with action as the chefs prepare sushi,...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
