Both the fish and the owners are right "off the boat." The result is excellent "old world" sushi with a mixture of avant garde concoctions. The price is very attractive. The decor and the location are un-inspiring, but more importantly, the food is very delicious and imaginative. As a veteran of every sushi bar in Mahattan, I can recommend this one with gusto. The bottom line for me with every restaurant is the same, "Do I wish to return?" The answer here is a clear yes.
