Sushi Ishikawa Serves An Actually Affordable Omakase

Neighborhood: , , | Featured in Restaurant, Restaurant Spotting

A sizable string of omakases have opened in the past year, with a commonality you can rely on; that they’re pretty expensive. Which is how, in a particular business that’s defined by impeccable fish and the impeachable technique of a series of presiding masters, Sushi Izikawa has set itself apart; bringing an affordable — yet no less ceremonial — sushi experience to the Upper East Side…

Nick Kim and Jimmy Lau helped make Neta a star in the city’s already stacked sushi circuit, bringing their staggeringly high-end restaurant experience (at Masa and Bar Masa, respectively) to bear.
