Matsunori is the kind of restaurant that attracts New Yorkers who like to be in the know. Somewhat of a hidden gem, this 10-seater spot serves top-quality omakase in an unpretentious setting. Here, you'll find fresh seafood, expertly prepared by a team of chefs that bring expertise from some of the finest sushi joints in the city.
Take your friends and pull up a chair at the bar, where you'll be able to chat with the staff and watch dishes come to life. Specialty dishes include Kumamoto oyster, bluefin tuna sashimi with ponzu sauce, and spicy salmon with cracker and black caviar. The best part of it all? You get your money's worth, as you can get one appetizer, 12 nigiri sushi, and one hand roll for $78. Oh, and it's BYOB if you need any more reason to visit.
