Here's Where To Get Affordable High-Quality Sushi in Flatiron (With A Little Bey & Jay Thrown In)
When the sushi craving strikes, you don't want the $12/three rolls deal. You want the good stuff. But you also don't want to spend $112 for one piece of tuna. Mizu in Flatiron has really high quality sushi—and the prices are fair. Their fish is all sourced from Japan and prepared by Japanese trained Chef Nakao Hirakata, who previously ran Mishima in Murray Hill for over 20 years. Here's what you need to order: the white tuna truffle as a sushi bar appetizer, the black cod fish as a hot appetizer, and the 'crazy toro roll' (stay with us) made with spicy tuna, avocado, Cajun seared toro, jalapaeño and srircha. If you feel like going for an omakase, it's only $45 (!!!) and includes eight pieces of specialty fish and a negitoro roll.
Once you’ve fully satisfied your sushi craving, walk a couple of blocks over to Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club. Not only is this a great place to catch a game (awesome finger foods, appetizers, and salads) but it's a really fun bar to have a casual cocktail and make friends with the other patrons. Plus, if it's good enough for Bey and Jay, it's good enough for you. Take a seat at a traditional table or dine in the risers that resemble an athletic stadium. Either way—you’ll be close to a bar! Fun fact: 40/40 plays on the Major League Baseball term for players who have achieved 40 home runs and 40 stolen bases in one single season.
