Sushi in NYC ... Raku Rocks

As a resident of Los Angeles, I have access to some of the best sushi in the world.  Maybe the best overall (it's up for debate).  What is not up for debate is that New York City, my other lover, boasts some pretty awesome fish itself — and among the best of NYC is Raku it's Japanese 2! on the upper west side.

I was first introduced to Raku by my darling Steph ... who, being honest, partly inspired my post today.  With so many good friends living in New York and two other beloveds currently visiting, I'm feeling a little lonely for Gotham.  This picture brings back wonderful memories of a perfect meal on a perfect Manhattan vacation.  What better review of a meal could there be?

The place is unassuming, small, and fabulous.  All about the food.  Our favorites:
  • Spicy Tuna roll (with brown rice)
  • King Crab Avocado roll
  • Yellowtail Black Dragon roll: spicy yellowtail with jalapeno, topped with tobiko
  • Spice Girl roll: crunchy snow crab avocado wrapped around seared black peppered tuna, with honey wasabi sauce
Bring a good friend when you go.  Order some sake, and fall in love with your life. :)
