My husband is arriving back in NYC this afternoon and is craving sushi after a three week absence. Usual suspects for more expensive sushi are Gari and Yasuda - and Blue Ribbon Sushi downtown for lunch. We've tried and liked 15 East, less a fan of Sushi Seki other than as a late night option, don't want to go to Kuruma or Nobu tonight, Masa too expensive.
I was thinking about trying the Columbus Circle Blue Ribbon, but am wondering if anyone has some suggestions about places I've not mentioned that we should try, assuming we can get a reservation. What about Sasabune - I did a quick search and the feedback seems positive? My husband might miss not having rolls though!
Edit - and I'd prefer not to go further south than midtown.
