had another awesome sushi dinner at Shimizu, the former Sushi Yasu place in the Washington Jefferson Hotel on 51st St. between 8th and 9th aves.
it's still BYOB so it saved us some $$$ and it's still not widely known so we were able to snag a couple of sushi bar seats without a resv. 2 of us had an amazing beef tataki appetizer, about 9 pieces of sushi each and 1 roll for a total of $108 w/o tip. not cheap but considering the quality of the fish it was definetely worth it.
it's the only sushi place i'd recommend in the west side and considering how Yasu had to close down due to the lack of business i think we should support this place if we want to keep it around.
