New Japanese on Upper West Side

TRK | Nov 2, 2000 11:46 AM

Visted Neo at 83rd and Bway last night. New, modern style Japanese. The sushi is served with a variety of sauces, each one designed for that type of fish. Sushi is very clean and fresh. All sushi is by the piece, generally in the $2-3 range. Pieces are medium sized. Among other things, they had flown in from Japan mackeral and three kinds of yellow tail.

I also tried the vegtable Tempura, which was quite good and very Japanese. The other cooked food looks good, but was not sampled. Most of the cooked food is neo-traditional, like beef cooked on your own hot rock.

The staff is quite large considering the smallish size of the place and is about 85% Japanese. Friendly.

This is not a standard place. Unless you order a "let the chef choose multicourse" ($50 and up), you will order multiple items.
