A great place for those who wa...

A great place for those who want to enjoy a delicious food. It is not cheap, but the food and service you receive are top-notch. Sake "Born" is my favorite ;) Bar sits are the best: you get your order slightly faster, you see a chef preparing your dishes, and, if there are many dishes you have never eaten before, you can observe people around you and order something you spotted on your neighbor's plate ;).

If you feel tired and want to freshen-up, just ask a chef to prepa
...view morere a refreshing dish for you... It is that simple.

If you do not clearly remember the proper chopsticks etiquette, make sure you google it before visiting the restaurant. (Just imagine yourself going to Arpège and not knowing which one of the three forks to choose to eat your favorite Savarins).

P.S.: IMPORTANT! This is one of only two Sushi restaurants in NYC where I eat raw fish without worrying about catching parasites or having an upset stomach.

Amazing Sushi

This sushi restaurant is one of my favorites. Located in Midtown, it is very easy to get to. The setting is beautiful and the staff is great. The service is fast, great for pre theater dining. Best kept secret. The sushi rolls are fresh and delicious and the chef is world known.

I've read the article on the-feedbag prior to going to Sushi Zen\r
I had the Barachirashi for lunch there! GREAT! stuff!!\r
It was so great we decided to go have dinner the following evening\r
I sat in front of Chef Suzuki as he recommended the Fugu! it was fantastic!\r
\r
the fish is definitely fresh well prepared and well presented\r
the preparation process was very entertaining!\r
It was really great to find this place!\r
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GETTING A SEAT AT THE SUSHI BAR!\r

perfect pre-theatre dinner

What a great place to go before the theatre. Good pieces of fresh sushi and sashimi just blocks away from your show!

The best sushi in NY

I go to many sushi places in the city and Sushi Zen is the best so far. Waiters and waitresses are polite and helpful. But, just make sure to make a reservation-it's usually quite crowded.

Service - Service - Service!

I piled on the wasabi, forgot my manners in my haze, & thoughtlessly placed my chop sticks down in a manner associated with someone who finished a meal-two parallel chopsticks placed on the bowl, rather than two chop sticks placed in a cross hatch position-suddenly, the server appeared out of no where (I assume the server kept a watchful eye upon us, but I never felt his presence in the slightest) offered to clear my plate-I write, ""offered"" because I want to differentiate his profe...view moressional manner from the countless ""rushers"" who wisk our plates away at other establishments. When I declined, he made certain not to offer again- even when I repeated the mistake-being attentive enough to notice, offer and refill my wine glass without reference to nor notice of my table manners. Kudos to the staff and the other review -- they are polite in the true sense.view less

Maybe my strongest recommendation ever -

If you have no consideration for the size of the final cheque, this might very well be the best sushi bar in NYC. It is close to some of my other favourites (like Nobu and Sushiden) but this one is even better. I like the sushi bar as this gives a certain extra at this place - they are just magnificent. The sushi/sashimi is outstanding and the speciality dishes are beyond greatness. It is more traditionally and lacks gimmicks like russian caviar and gold leaf- and if it that want you d...view moreesire there are places for that. Here the sushi master is unusally helpful and amicable. This assists in making the experience outstanding. The presentation of the food was outstanding. The price tag was hefty though (to say the least) and I can't really disclose what my bill was but somehow I wasn't surprised.view less

Pure Sushi Heaven

A co-worker told me about Sushi Zen. We went on 12/17/04 (in the midst of xmas shopping pandomonium) and waljed into heaven! I can't tell you how DELICIOUS the sushi is here! We sat at the sushi bar and enjoyed plate after plate of the freshest sushi in the city...and ""I'm"" ALL about sushi! Only take a date who won't pay attention to the amount on the check or go with friends and clink glasses for a while!

WOW! a taste from japan

a few weeks after returning from my vacation in Japan, I had a crave for sushi & sashimi.

I have found a gold mine!!

the restaurant serves sushi and sashimi as if I went back to Tukiji in Japan!
Traditional sushi layout (really nice plates!), with mouth watering sashimi that melts in your mouth! I recommend everyone to dine at the sushi counter! you can order straight from the chefs!
the prices are very reasonable (slightly higher than the common Japanese restaurants) but i
...view morets certainly worth every dollar spent!!view less
