Finally made it by Cube 63 last night on Court Street and I am so happy to finally have a place for solid sushi in the neighborhood. Alongside Taku, we're finally getting some solid asian food around here.
I'm only worried that the sushi chef told us that the business is still a little slow / word not getting around so fast.
We set at the sushi bar and had a sampling of sushi, sashimi, and a couple of rolls.
Before we ordered, the chef presented us with a beautiful amuse of a spicy sushi roll (I didn't catch what the fish were, but very tasty and artfully presented on a bed of two sauces). Also, it being byob, and not knowing, the chef was nice enough to offer us a couple of glasses of the white wine he was drinking :)
The miso soup was particularly tasty.
The sashimi slices were very generous. Enjoyed the toro sashimi particularly($8). As well as a scallop sashimi interwoven with slices of lime. Sea eel was delicious.
The rolls I want to gush about for a moment as I have a big hang up on all of the sushi places in NY that make the rolls too big for one elegant bite. No one I know likes having to either a) shove a huge roll into their mouth or b) try to bite a piece of it and end up with a big mess. I can happily say that these rolls were perfectly sized.
Really was a wonderful place, tucked away in cobble hill. Total for two full sushi bingers was about $80.
