This is one of the more popular spots to score moderately priced sushi in the East Village. The menu is pretty straightforward, a mix of classic sushi rolls, nigiri and specialty rolls stuffed with ingredients like soft-shell crab tempura and baked spicy shrimp. The non-fish offerings are also basic: free-range chicken teriyaki, chicken katsu, tempura udon and soba noodles, shumai and miso soup. What really distinguishes this place is the quality of the fish for the price; most basic rolls top out at about $5 and even massive specialty rolls rarely go above $10. There are also a variety of sushi combos, featuring a mix of sashimi, nigiri and rolls, that all cost around $20. The space itself is narrow and clean, a single row of black two-tops backed by a white banquette, followed by a wooden sushi bar where the chefs do their thing. The crowd reflects the overall demographic of the St. Mark's area, meaning that if you're over 40 you'll probably be the oldest one there.— Keith Wagstaff
