Since being introduced to sushi by my best friend from Japan when I was 13, I’ve become somewhat of a fanatic. I’ve even learned to make it myself and love to prepare my own crazy varieties.
Needless to say I’ve been to dozens and dozens of sushi restaurants in New York City — everywhere from highly acclaimed Nobu and Ono to the fast food of Japanese cuisine: Monster Sushi. This weekend I went to Sushi A-GO-GO for dinner with my girlfriend and I have to say they have THE BEST sushi I’ve ever eaten in Manhattan.
The restaurant is located across from Lincoln Center super close to the 1 train and a great pre- or post-movie spot due to the proximity to Loews Cinema. The interior of the restaurant is designed in classic Japanese mixed with 1960s mods touches of geometric furniture and neon hues.
Sushi A-GO-GO’s moderate prices (rolls $6.50-12.95), fancy rolls and creative drink menus make it the perfect venue for a date or a girls night out. I highly recommend the Edamame,which is seasoned with slightly spiced salt mix, and go-go seaweed salad to start. Must try specialty rolls include: the Crispy Hawaiian Lobster Roll (avocado, asparagus, tempura flakes with soy paper and spicy mango sauce), the Miso Glazed Red Snapper Roll (with asian pear and avocado) and the Big Go Go (california roll with kampyo, topped with barbecued fresh water eel).
They also offer various drink specials including sake-tinis, asian pear mojitos and more. During the week you can usually walk in but I’d recommend reservations on the weekends.
