Believe The Hype!! The Best Sushi Patrolling Ever
Sushi Nakazawa 23 Commerce Street, NYC (212)-924-2212 I finally made it to Sushi Nakazawa!! This patrolling was definitely the most exciting patrolling ever. Especially since it’s still hard to get a reservation at Sushi Nakazawa. Actually, it’s the most exciting patrolling ever since I started my Cutie Patroller blog!!! You can believe the hype about Nakawaza. I am not over exaggerating. Sometimes you get disappointed when you have high expectations, but my experience at Nakazawa was so much more than I expected. Super friendly Chef Daisuke Nakazawa explained each nigiri to us in English and Japanese. Chef Nakazawa kindly answered any questions I had with smile. Also, how cute is it that he uses a mini iPad to show pictures of fish and explain each nigiri to the counter guests? This is definitely a new way of “OMOTENASHI” (the heart of Japanese hospitality) and I’m loving it!! We had 20 pieces of sushi Omakase. Plus one extra in the end. All of the sushi pieces were incredible. Traditional, yet each piece had a cute twist. When I had salmon it was full of wara-smoke flavor. The red snapper had Kinkan zest. One of my favorite nigiri was Akagai. Since I’m mini clam which Mirugai, Agarai, Aoyagi, and Awabi are my absolute favorite sushi so when the chef told me he had Akagai I was so excited!! It was the best Akagai I ever had between NY and Japan.
