Anyone know where to buy quality tuna belly in NYC for home?

I would agree most likely not many which is why top sushi places still ship in from Tsukiji. Though, I would like to believe that there is atleast one place around here that conforms to a standard.

sushi grade basically means parasite free fish which is often is accomplished by ‘freezing and storing seafood at -4°F (-20°C) or below for 7 days (total time), or freezing at -31°F (-35°C) or below until solid and storing at -31°F (-35°C) or below for 15 hours, or freezing at -31°F (-35°C) or below until solid and storing at -4°F (-20°C) or below for 24 hours. Tuna belly also known as Toro has its own grading scale based on the fat content level of the fish.

Looking for feedback and suggestions on foodie vacation to NYC

If you can get the reservation at Per Se its definitely a life changing experience. EMP is also very good. WD-50's plates are visually appealing and a lot of work goes into making them. Although, I personally don't like eating a plate with fragmented pieces of food all over it. KO is just another overrated gimmicky restaurant.

Amazing food without Stuffy Service:

Sushi of Gari (counter on UES)

Le Bernardin although Jacket is required I didn't find the service here to be too stuffy but I can't say the same about the surrounding fossil patrons

Marea ( Michael White is so much better than Batali when it comes to Italian)

Il Mulino Although they don't have a tasting menu or prices on the menu its still a fine choice
