New York: Sushi Yasuda
Meetings can be long and a refreshing dinner really hits the spot. My friend Bob Walker was interested in sushi. Since we were in midtown Manhattan, we had a lot of choices. He checked out Sushi Yasuda, which had an excellent reputation.
I had a selection of sushi and a roll: salmon, tuna, roe, etc. The fish was extremely fresh; the roe still tasted of the sea. Even the rice was noticeably good. Yasuda is big for a sushi place, small for a New York restaurant. Five sushi chefs labored at the sushi bar to prepare the food, but the atmosphere was completely uncrushed.
