This serene sushi sanctuary changed it's name from Koi to avoid confusion with the restaurant by the same name inside the Bryant Park Hotel. Kanoyama continues the tradition of meltingly fresh sushi and sashimi served at decent prices. A word of wisdom: Order anything with toro on the menu. The bluefin toro sashimi melted away like butter on the tongue, and a delicately seared toro appetizer arrives with a sharply delicious ponzu sauce. Cooked entrées included a flaky and tender miso cod in a sweet-soy glaze. Ice cream, served in heaping scoops, is the only dessert; the candied-ginger flavor is so good, you wouldn’t dream of complaining that the portion is too large. For those looking for a drink, the adjacent space is home to their sake bar, where an extensive selection is available.
