If you have never tried sushi, start your journey here at Hatsuhana. Ever since it opened its doors in 1976, it has become the go-to place for those who have never tried sushi, sashimi or any of the delightfully fresh-in-your-mouth dishes that regale a Japanese restaurant menu. The decor is decidedly simple and serene: blonde wood, Japanese lanterns, that muffles the din of the city just beyond the transom to frantic 48th St. This place has "no gimmicks" just the freshest fish from Maine, Spain, Japan or New England to name a few sources, the most delightful decor that recedes as your dining experience takes center stage and really scrumptious sushi. Cooked dishes include tempura: shrimp, taro root, pumpkin and maybe broccoli made in a way you might not be able to at home. You'll be hobnobbing with lots of regulars in business suits. And don't forget the sake.
- Japanese: "If it is sushi or sashimi you want, go to the second floor, sit at the counter and point, the chefs will understand and provide. Not ready to choose? Order the Sushi Special "Jo" for eight pieces of sushi and one roll."
- Best for Japanese Because: Midtowners – Japanese and American – have been enjoying this bi-level traditional sushi palace since 1976.
