For one magnificent year, I lived two blocks from Sushi Nozawa and ate there nearly once a week.
Recently, I moved downtown and find myself a little disappointed by the sushi places around here.
I tried Hamakawa and Sushi Gen... and they're both fine, but nothing compares to the deliciously succulent fish at Nozawa, melted ever-so-slightly by the warm rice.
Yes, I also love Sasabune and Echigo, but I need an outstanding sushi fix within a few miles of my new place (downtown area).
Help me!! Will I ever taste anything as good as Nozawa again? I feel like I have tasted the golden fruit and can never go back...
