Midtown's Best Restaurants, Best Restaurants, Asian: Upon entering Sushi Yasuda, one is immediately aware of the absence of art, decorations, or anything that might attract the eye. It is minimalist to the extreme with bamboo-plank walls and open spaces. This simplicity is reflected in Chef Naomichi Yasuda's cuisine as well. The fillets of fish are custom-cut for each order, as pre-cut fish begins to break down almost immediately, losing some of its delicate textures and flavors. The pure and clean dishes are built out of respect for tradition have helped this restaurant to earn a three star review in the New York Times, and numerous accolades on lists like these ones the city over.
Sushi: 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
