An Atlantan Back In New York: Lunchtime Omakase!

Neta: Greenwich Village, Manhattan, NY, USA

I came here on a whim before I moved to New York and was on a trip here. One of the things I love about this city is the vast number of great sushi bars that offer omakase. I didn’t have time to do an official dinner reservation, but thankfully Neta had lunch omakase! It’s too hard to rate each individual piece so overall here is my experience:

– very fresh fish, great quality
– coming at the later end of lunch hour on a weekday for the omakase means that you get almost the entire place to yourself. It’s an amazing experience to enjoy sushi but you do have to be used to or okay with eating by yourself.
– because it wasn’t busy, service was on point – I always had my glass refilled and never had to ask.
– the Uni was overflowing (yes this is a pro)

– none

I would definitely come back if I had time on a weekday. Now that I’ve moved here, it’s been great to have access to these places that I thought I was just visiting!  You can find them in Greenwich Village (towards the west side):

61 W 8th St
New York, NY 10011

b/t Avenue Of The Americas & Greenwich Ave 
Greenwich Village

Definitely stop on by.  Some of the YELP reviews weren’t that great but honestly, if you’re going to go to a restaurant on Restaurant Week, they’re going to be more swamped than normal which means you need to have more patience! Don’t let that deter you from trying out a new spot and making the decision based on your own tastes!
