Kanoyama does have "variety".
Through the prism of "shun", however, it's quality w/ (your timely) selection that can make a stand-out.
"See, that's the stuff I love ... "
nakaochi, order fresh wasabi for the "scrape" then enjoy the contrast of texture - bone & gelatin - face food.
Look for buri here.

Not sushi ... perhaps Ronin for lunch, which won't smoke your card.
Go early, look for the specials.

Macaroni Made Many Ways: Yes Cafe Avenue U.

A solid "knish" lead?
That area of Ave U. is NY.

Gold Label on Brighton Beach

"across from the synagogue" ... same place?

"I'm banned from it" ... shit,
Been "86"ed N/S/E & W in this borough, lulz :-)

Another place off 10th comes highly recommended.
Familiar?

Is Japanese food overrated?

Let's just see where Janet takes those interest rates.

Worth the schlep?
recs?

Off Homecrest? I love this section of Bklyn.
the 50's/8th ... or further out ... 65th .. been there?

Spanish Restaurant

"shrimp with green sauce" ...
Sevilla, WV, good neighborhood place.

Okinawa ...
The first "dish" that turned me on was mozuko, high summer, w/ a raw quail egg.

"Your experience" is, very much, appreciated.

All places <<here>>, I believe, face strong headwinds; they've got to 'find' your audience.

Appreciate the Shuko write-up.

The spaghettini/abalone at n/naka (in LA) opened my eyes to "bread". A note on that board mentioned, IMHO w/ insight, the nigiri course was the weakest of the evening.

Six days on the water off of Catalina for bluefin is as close to me as fly fishing in Kamchatka.
Some day.

Please do tell ... Shuko.
Downriggers, still waiting ... never landed a tuna.

Better yet ... "bite this".

Perhaps "Columbia Heights", never Red Hook.
"There's no better time to buy" ... yeah, bite me.

You do know you're killing me w/ that smoked saba at Masa.
I pass on "gold-leaf".
& beluga ... IMHO: the tin, a mother-of-pearl spoon, and chilled vodka.
just another "old man".

Sushi moments in nyc

Old man ... get some "Vastedda", here.
Like this ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji9Dl...
sorta.

IIRC you hold that particular locale in low esteem.
They did, however, give good head (in the buri kabuto-ni sense).

I once recall speaking w/ an itamae who spoke of ..
a small towm ...
in a distant prefecture ..
where at a specific time of year ...
there is this fish ...
whose wata ..
prepared in this manner is ...
sublime.

Sushi moments in nyc

Please, heard that 'old man' line ... in more than one 'cuisine' ;-)
So, the 4-wata starter at 'Brushstoke' is a staple?
Summer ... raw abalone liver in ponzu, Ushiwakamaru.
The buri head can sometimes be had at Kanoyama (I see SJ in apoplexy).

I always wonder when I see these trucks bouncing along ... http://www.trueworldfoods.com/product...

Sweet re-(views) ... never been, shortlisted.

Namako has some serious tooth.
I've had shiokara, for the most part, in izakayas.
Assuming this appeals ...
Ever do konowata gunkan or the composed preparations at Soto?
The hotaruika no okizuke ( http://japanesefood1.blogspot.com/201... ) at S+C mentioned above also made me look up.

The knife skills I referenced in my original post delivered stellar (toes curl/angels sing) offerings ... eye and palate yield.

If, during this season, you come across either tarabagani (++ if kani miso gunkan is served) or buri (kabuto-ni/yaki), give a shout out.

Sushi moments in nyc

Shame, some of their starters/supplements come off as a draw ...
bafun-uni shooter (w/ an onsen egg), saba heskiko, ika nankotsu, firefly okizuke and tairagai.
Pace & portion issues? Perhaps they're just cutting teeth.

Sushi moments in nyc

Not as pure ... but, I've enjoyed the maguro-kama at Kinnosuke.
Limited availablility, but this would be the time of year to look if interested.

Sushi moments in nyc

Sure.
But those tiny booths on the ground floor ...

Sushi moments in nyc

"Chew" ... wait until the new year and order namako.
Let's compare "notes".

Can Zenkichi still "fry"?
I recall some exceptional shirako/shungiku tempura a while back.

Sushi moments in nyc

Expecting iambic pentameter?
Given your clock I suspect you're back home in fapland.
What's the read on Salt + Charcoal ... decent robataya ... predictably overrun w/ the overpriviledged?

Sushi moments in nyc

January ... Hideo w/ mirugai ... the soft lip cusps the shari w/ a crisp tight curl off the top lip.

Oct ... Shimizu (UWS) ... diagonally/cross-hatched cut kohada ... raises the folds and places single sesame seeds on each point ... art.

Weighing Nakazawa vs Ichimura

Remember his place up in the E50's?
Right about now, feel that chill, you'd get grillled tara shirako.
Tiny coils of sheer pleasure ...
Today, "Everyone gets the same"

Weighing Nakazawa vs Ichimura

I've walked in w/ a hoody.
Anything interesting lately?
