Manhattan – East Village
67 First Ave between 4th and 5th Sts
Manhattan, NY 10003
Don"t mind the seen-it-before blond wood, bamboo and jolly gold Buddha; venture in and you will be handsomely rewarded. Vegetable gyoza and are prettily presented, but more exciting offerings, such as an avocado half filled with tuna, salmon eggs and masago, steal the show. The avocado tail on the dragon roll has an artful flourish, while the honey-shrimp-asparagus roll gets a kick from tempura flakes and sweet honey mustard. Desserts should not be overlooked, either--try the flaky, tempura-dipped green-tea ice cream. Standing by for your take-out order?
