The original location of Masatoshi “Gari” Sugio's chainlet is still one of the best sushi restaurants in NYC. Start with an omakase tasting, finish with the tempura-fried ice cream. [Eater 38 Member]
An exquisite raw fish experience with uniquely crafted pieces. Try the tuna with tofu cream, flounder with lotus chip, and the foie gras sushi.
Sure Gari has opened other locations in the city but somehow the quality of his innovative creations is never quite the same as at his baby on the Upper East Side. - Inspector
omakase. that is all.
One Michelin star.
All I can say is YUM - order the Omakase! The chef really knows what he's doing!
Ask for omakase. You will have an orgasm in your mouth. Oh, and ask for sake to liberate the entrance.
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).
Best sushi in all of NYC, hands down. The special salmon sushi piece with cooked tomato is an absolute must try.
Order the omakase and let the chef choose the best fish of the day. Their uni is divine.
Best overpriced sushi I've had in the city (overpriced comparators being ushiwakamaru and nobu)
Delicious approach to fusion sushi. Go for the omakase. Tell then to stop when u are done. 10 pcs of sushi at around 75 dollars.
Guaranteed one of the best meals of your life if you have the Omikase. Each piece melts in your mouth. Sushi heaven.
Doing the omakase. It's really the only way.
Mortgage the house and order the omakase!
Money sushi.. No sauce required!
Spicy Scallop Roll is a must
Hot sake & omakase. Delicious win.
If you go, sit at the sushi bar and order the omakase. Our favorite pieces are the yellowtail with jalepeno and the tuna with miso.
The omakase is spectacular. Get some tamago to round it out!
When the waiter asks you if you've had enough omakase or have room for more, you know what to reply.
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.
The Best Japanese Restaurant in NY
Best sashimi special and try the sea urchin sushi, can't find delicacy like that anywhere.
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!
7/10 not all that
Hands down the best sushi I've ever had. Order the Omakase!!!!
Serious one of the best sushi places I've ever been to. Get the omakase - tell them what you don't eat and what you like!
Try the sushi!
Get the Sushi Deluxe and don't use soy sauce!!
get the omakase, period. The crepe mille feuille for dessert is good too!
Favorite sushi counter in the city. Leave the selection up to the chef and your belly will thank you.
Order the steamed monkfish liver wirth ponzu sauce as an appetizer and then have the salmon with roasted tomatoes, yellowtail with jalapeno and sea urchin as nigiri.
Amazing! Chef's choice was always delicious and creative. Make sure to get the salmon sushi with roasted tomato on top... I've never eaten sushi that melts in your mouth before and it was amazing
Chef's selection. Its worth the Money!
Sure Gari has opened other locations in the city but somehow the quality of his innovative creations is never quite the same as at his baby on the Upper East Side.
Get the omakase. It's not the place to go and order a california roll. But make sure you get the barbecued otoro.
I think I saw god like five times tonight. Go omakase.
Great portion and quality chirashi sushi.
First time having omakase so can't really compare it to anything else. The quail egg one was my favorite though, was a mouthgasmmm 😋
Gari san was 49th sumo champion in Japan, the tea mug says.
Uni sushi costs normally around $9 a piece. Very fresh and flavorful.
The best uni gunkan sushi in New York. Sea urchin is so fresh and sweet. Michelin starred sushi-ya.
Master take on sushi with a modern twist
Go for broke and get the omakase
