Taro Sushi

244 Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11217 | Park Slope | 718-398-5240

Location Description:

At this no-frills cult spot, the fish is as pristine and skillfully prepared as at any of the expense-account sushi places in Manhattan. Sit at the bar for omakase, a relative bargain, and munch your way through earthy monkfish liver, sweet shrimp sashimi (the head is fried separately) and a large selection of the fish that's freshest that day.
