This is probably going to get some people upset, but whatever...
We recently moved to Southport, CT, and are in dire need of sushi in the area. Of course, when we want the good stuff we'll just head to NYC, but we'd like to have somewhere around here for when we don't have time to do that.
Here's the thing: we're unabashed sushi snobs. We've been to the top places in Tokyo and in the U.S. When we eat in NYC we go to Sushi Yasuda, and sit at the bar and have Yasuda serve us omakase style, or we go to 15 East and do the same thing there.
We're fully aware we're not going to get anything like this near us in CT. What we're looking for is the closest thing. (If the closest thing isn't very good we just won't have sushi around here, but we have to give it a try).
We don't want "asian fusion", three varieties of miso cod, fried maki with cream cheese doused in mayo, etc... we want somewhere where we can sit down at the sushi bar and have a couple of pieces served at a time of high-quality nigiri, preferably made w/ real wasabi, with attention paid to the quality of the rice, by someone with knife skills.
Has anyone had something like this within, say, a 30 minute drive from Westport?
