Sushi of Gari
Posted by AD on 07/16/2010
The service is adequate, the prices a bit on the high side - but the sushi is amazing. There are plenty of places for 'good and affordable' sushi in the neighborhood. Gari operates at a higher plane. Order the Omakase and prepare to experience a symphony of flavors. A truly wonderful, rare experience.

I was knocked over by this sushi, the fusion offerings are revelation-inducing, and the service was very good. But yikes! it is expensive.

Go into Sushi Of Gari with a clear mind, sit and let the staff bring you whatever the chefs want to give you and I almost guarantee you'll be blown away. That's really the case with most sushi places, but even more so with Gari. Let the sushi chef's creative devices take over and let them serve you whatever is fresh. The chefs and staff however are as cold as an icicle on a winter morning. Ignore them and simply eat... Recommended!

This is by far the best sushi i have ever eaten. From the tuna with grilled tomato to the chopped eel to the fried oyster roll..everything is to die for.

The last reviewer has it spot on. Look, peeps, sushi is less good for you than you think, so it should be a special occasion meal for most of us. If we get it, it should be really good. Thats where sushi of Gari comes in. It'll cost you a lot here, but the sushi quality will be excellent, which cannot be said for 95% of the sushi places in NYC.

mike is surprised that sushi of gari doesn't need more customers? that it suspends delivery when it gets very busy, which is nearly every night? gari is one of a handful of sushi chefs in the world who can make kings and potentates wait willingly, and with good reason -- his product is best in class, priced more fairly then most of comparable quality, and garnish with surpassing creativity. do you need to be known to them to get a seat at the sushi bar or delivery? usually, yes, but who wants a sushi chef who mass produces?

I went to this place and was forced to sit at the bar...the waiter took forver to get me the menu...the food is fresh but extremely overpriced for the portions....would not go back ever...just not worth it.
