Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

With its austere white facade, you’ll likely mistake this unmarked West Village sushi bar for an art gallery. You’re not too far off—except that its owner, a third-generation sushi chef who arrived in New York by way of Atlanta, constructs Japanese-style seafood masterpieces instead of head-scratching abstract designs. Sotohiro Kosugi presides sternly over this sleek 42-seat eatery, crafting stunning fish dishes, with an emphasis on sea urchin. Among our favorites is uni wrapped in strands of translucent squid and nestled in a bed of nori strips, with a rich quail egg yolk puttingit over the top. Kosugi’s pristinely prepared seafood easily steals the spotlight from the warm dishes turned out by wife Maho. The exception: a quivering chawanmushi laced with sliced shiitake and a single shrimp.
