Welcome to my first post of my new restaurant review series: Chrissie Dines Out! In today’s post, I’ll be sharing with you some recent eateries of my favorite cuisine – SUSHI!!
The NYC dining out life has really transformed and has been totally giving off that European outdoor dining vibes. Restaurants have come up with some really pretty and interesting dining experiences and honestly, I’m kinda liking it. Granted, the reason why outdoor dining is a thing right now is because of Covid-19, but I mean, hey – let’s make lemonade out of lemons!
Located on the Upper West Side, this place hands down has the best price for sushi lunch. The entire lunch menu is $12 and there’s even 50% off all beer and wine. YUMMMM! You have an option of 3 rolls, a Sushi Set (6Pcs Sushi & Salmon Avocado Roll), a Sashimi Set (12Pcs Sashimi & side of rice), or a Sushi & Sashimi Set (3Pcs Sushi, 6Pcs Sashimi & Salmon Avocado Roll) for $12 each! If you’re not a fan of raw fish, no worries – this place has got you covered with their Teriyaki or Tempura Bento Boxes.
I ordered the Sushi & Sashimi set and paired that with a cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc. The meal was truly delectable and I would 100% go back to try out their dinner options.
This lovely restaurant is located in Midtown right near Herald Square and has the most yummy drinks that goes great with their fresh sushi. The sushi rolls prices can range between moderate to pricey, but I believe the quality of the fish totally makes it worth it. Their drinks here are also phenomenal – I had their seasonal summer moscato sangria!
Despite being situated in Midtown Manhattan, there are plenty of tables for outdoor dining and the decorations are beyond cute. The planters contain actual basil and mint – how cute and organic!
Situated on the Upper West Side, this eatery is famous for its ramen and gyoza. While I did have a bite of ramen from my friend’s bowl (the soup is super rich), I’m here to share with you their classic tuna poke.
They unfortunately do not have a lunch special, but I would say the prices are moderately priced for an Upper West Side location. They gave me plenty of fresh tuna pieces, along with some other toppings. It’s a classic dish and the perfect meal to stay cool while eating on a hot summer day.
Xoxo, Chrissie Carly
