Best Restaurants: Entering Sushi Yasuda one is immediately aware of the absence of art, decorations, anything that might attract the eye. It is minimalist to the extreme, bamboo-plank walls and open spaces. This simplicity is reflected in Chef Naomichi Yasuda's cuisine as well. The filets of fish are custom cut for each order as pre-cut fish will begin to break down almost immediately, losing some of its delicate textures and flavors. The pure and clean dishes built out of respect for tradition have helped this restaurant to a three star review in the New York Times. TRAIN: S, 4, 5, 6, 7 to 42nd St-Grand Central.
Sushi, Asian, Midtown's Best Restaurants: If you are looking to feast on raw fish in an elegant environment graced by bamboo paneling and intimate lighting, your search for a restaurant is over. Sushi Yasuda offers exotic dining options from the appetizers to the desserts. Try the sashimi or the cherrystone clam, and finish off with the red-bean ice cream or the green-tea ice cream--definitely an indulgence that's worth it. TRAIN: S, 4, 5, 6, 7 to 42nd St-Grand Central
