Sushi by Boū is about as budget-friendly as top-flight omakase can get. The latest from David Bouhadana (an affordable sushi pioneer at Sushi Dojo and Sushi on Jones) is tucked below midtown’s Sanctuary Hotel. This is stripped-down sushi at its finest: 12 no-frills pieces eaten in a nonnegotiable 30 minutes. Every two-and-a-half minutes brings a new treat from the unswerving stream of pristine fish (much of it flown in daily from Tokyo’s famed Tsukiji market).
