The NYC import of the Sushi Nozawa group’s wildly popular L.A. sushi destination, Sugarfish, has incited four-hour lines since debuting in November 2016. Now a second Nozawa fish concept is heading to the East Coast: KazuNori specializes in temaki, sushi hand rolls that are offered a la carte or in fixed-course options (three, four, five or six hand rolls), in varieties like blue crab, bay scallop and toro. (As with Nozawa’s maki, the rolls are made with specially harvested nori and warm rice.) The sparsely dressed room, which features a 24-seat counter, is first-come, first-served, so gear up for Sugarfish-level lines.

I used to go to KazuNori two times a week on average when I lived in Los Angeles. What was there not to love? The line moved quickly, the food was superb, and you were essentially getting a Sugarfish-quality meal for a cheaper price (plus handrolls are more filling anyway) . I'd like to think that KazuNori and I were so close that we made the move to New York together and magically ending up here around the same time. KazuNori New York is larger than the Los Angeles DT location which helps in regards to the line. I will say, I have noticed that the New York location uses less rice than the locations in LA. Regardless, the rolls are still delicious. It's been wonderful to see some of the friendly faces of the staff from LA who have moved to the NY location. The customer service is excellent and the food is always worth the wait.
