Just to remind y'all- Uptown Sushi (Cgy) is till kicking ass

John Manzo | Jan 12, 2007 03:11 AM

Uptown Sushi got a mention in this month's "cheap eats" article in City Palate (and about bloody time, I think this is the first time I've seen a print mention of this fantastic place). I was away for almost 3 weeks over Xmas and today was my first day back there since maybe November, and goodness is Michael still on his game. I'd complained (well, maybe "complained" is too strong) that his rice was on the gummy side on a couple of visits- not so any longer, perfect today (got my usual- two spice tuna rolls, one yam tempura roll, and one piece of unagi nigiri- I would have liked two but unagi is getting expensive everywhere now (anybody know why?) so I just had one. All was magnificent, and with a bottle of water, came to about $14.

I know I've raved about this place too many times, but today I was (at a little before noon) the only customer, although takeout orders were clearly being prepped, this place deserves more biz. I keep thinking that with people now living in the Stella condo tower and the Vantage Pointe tower starting to allow move-ins (almost 300 units there), with Uptown steps away, its fortunes should be sealed, but they still can't survive on my good wishes. So check 'em out!

And of course the thread title should read "STILL" not "TILL."
