My sister, who hates cities, is finally visiting me. She wants to do sushi take out for lunch at my place (on 90th) and I want to impress, but I'm on a budget....the $3-5 per roll price range would be perfect. Looking through old threads, it seems that Planet Sushi, Kitaro and Miyako get the most enthusiastic responses, but I'm not married to any of them yet. As an upper west sider, I should be able to make this decision myself, but as a student, I don't order much sushi.
Any opinions? We'll probably be ordering standard sushi fare but are open to non-sushi dishes as well.
Also, has anyone tried the sushi at Ivy's? I heard buzz ages ago and I'm curious, but I don't put much stock in buzz.
