David Bouhadana (of the short-lived Sushi Uo) oversees this 36-seat sushi spot, serving no-frills omakase and traditional Japanese plates. The Morimoto alum dispatches slips of Tasmanian sea trout, Santa Barbara uni and three types of fatty tuna at the L-shaped sushi bar. In the dining room, look for seafoodcentric appetizers like ponzu-slick hirame and gently cooked octopus, as well as hot dishes including grilled shishito peppers, braised pork belly and deep-fried tofu in dashi broth. To drink, pluck from a 40-bottle sake list, ranging from fruity Kagatobi ginjo to full-bodied Kitaya junmai.

I often hit NYC omakase joints solo as to avoid the typically long wait. At Sushi Dojo, the bar is omakase only. There are many highly rated sushi restaurants in NYC, but to me the mark of a great one is the interaction with the sushi chef. At Sushi Dojo, the chef took the time to describe each piece in detail. The trout, akami and wagyu beef were my favorite pieces.

Excellent! I thought I knew what Sushi was until I found this place. No wonder Zagat listed them #1 best deals in NYC. Nice atmosphere, great Sushi bar: the chef loves to answer any questions and educate about authentic Japanese sushi . Highly recommend.
