Venue says: "Come in for the freshest sushi straight from Japan!"

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.

I had heard about Kanoyama a while ago as spot when you get can quality sushi for a reasonable price. It has a $39 omakase menu! Compared to famous omakase restaurants that charge upwards of $150 per person (although I'm sure the fish is delicious), this is much more affordable. I did not get the omakase but instead order the $18 special: 3 rolls and miso soup. The service here was excellent. The waiter was very attentive, and the plate was arranged beautifully. There were five sushi men behind the counter, so the sushi came out pretty quickly. I am looking forward to going back.
