Nippori Sushi

Nippori Sushi

I was up for some sushi and after a little on-line research I came upon Nippori. They have a rather large selection of lunch items and an even larger dinner menu. I choose the Yellowtail scallion, spicy Hamachi(Yellowtail), and Eel and Avocado rolls from the Three Roll Maki combo to satisfy my sushi cravings. Though the selection of rolls here is smaller than most (10 rolls on the lunch special at best) the quality here was superior to most. The Sushi lunch comes with soup and salad. Both were better then usual, a nice selection of Spring greens and an exceptional Miso soup.

They do charge for tea here (though only$1.50) which is a proverbial per peeve of mine. However do to the quality of the food, service and setting(good looking place inside with lots of dark wood, a long marble bar and traditional Japanese seating booths)I think I can let it slide and add Nippori to my go to Sushi lunch spots. On a recent visit I had from their Ramen selection the spicy Sutamina which was very good and a half bowl of rice(only $5 with a Ramen order) topped with golden roe and big slices of Tuna, Salmon and Yellowtail. If you’re looking for some superior Sushi and Japanese cooking in Midtown check this place out.
