Sushi Amane by Japanese chef Shion Uino raises the highest expectations from the Tokyo frequenting sushi lovers residing in or traveling to New York. Hailing from Sushi Saito, one of the most iconic three Michelin sushi restaurants in Tokyo, this authentic Japanese export to Manhattan will not disappoint. The young chef Uino worked himself all the way up to the nigiri sushi at the second counter of Saito, and currently Amane might be the best quality and value sushiya in New York.
Decade under his sushi belt taught the chef a razor concentration on his material. He slices each morsel with gentle elegance and brushes the nigiri like a painter with the reduction sauce of nitsume or the nikiri sweet glaze. To witness him in his mindful artisanship is a meditative experience for any participant in this delectable ritual set in the midst of sped-up New York.
Our first meal at Amane was so spotless, that we made sure we ate there again a month later on our return to the Big Apple from California. Beware, if you are more than 30 minutes late for your reservation or cancel under 48 hours prior to your meal there, you will be charged the full $250 cancellation fee per guest. Be prompt, and do not get sick, please!
