    One of my go to sushi spots. Omakase is very unique. Each piece comes with a special garnish or sauce that enhances the fish.

    Ask for the iPad to scroll through different sushi pieces. Stick to the sushi pieces if you are a real sushi lover. And get the spicy scallop roll or hand roll.

    Each sushi piece on the omakase menu has a unique twist and delicious. My fave was the snowcrab topped with uni. You start out wondering if you'll ever be full but we were satisfied after 9 pieces.

    Did you know? Sushi of Gari is one of the only restaurants in the US where you can try out the TOTO Washlet S350e toilet seat (a Japanese bidet). It's true luxury (for your butt).

    Ordering omakase is another level of sushi/sashimi that everyone should experience. 5 rounds, each leaving you more excited for the next. Pictures just don't do it justice.

    Truly some of the best sushi in New York. Get the omakase and sit back and enjoy. But be warned this is a special occasion meal. If you indulge it may end up costing 4-5 hundred dollars!
