Shinbashi - Best Sushi In NYC?

sushiman | Dec 29, 200907:19 AM

OK, this is an unadulterated pitch for Shinbashi.

Mr. Nakajima, formerly of Sushiden has teamed up with Mr. Ishida at Shinbashi.

If you like old school traditional sushi and sashimi, you have to go there.

Mr. Nakajima, while trained in Tokyo (Kanda, not Ginza style), at his father's restaurant, has embraced the wide variety of sushi styles of Japan. In particular, the fish of Kyushu and Hakata style sushi with his own twists. He gets most of his fish from Hakata, but has amazing connections at Tskiji Market. I have been there with him.

Mr. Ishida is one of the hidden treasures of the NYC sushi scene. An old school master(and scratch golfer), he is even a licenced Fugu chef in Japan. He comes up with stuff I have never seen before and is particularly skilled in the kitchen.

All I can say is that these two can surpise and delight. After 30 years I am happy that someone can still find something new for me.
