Start With Quality Sushi and Finish at an Exclusive Club Specialized In Japanese Drinks
We’re always on the hunt for a good sushi place north of 14th Street that offers major vibes without breaking the bank. At Nare Sushi, you’ll get the upscale feel without the upscale prices. Whether you try their omakase or order a la carte, this hidden gem brings fresh quality fish to Midtown, where you’ll dine under vaulted ceilings in the three-tiered restaurant space. To finish, try the matcha tiramisu—we think it’s the perfect note on which to end. Pro tip: Nare Sushi is located in the lobby of an office building, so don’t be confused when Google Maps directs you to a corporate building/mini-mall.
After, check out Tomi Jazz, formerly an exclusive club serving only Japanese patrons. The intimate jazz club still serves Japanese favorites on its sake and izakaya menu, and you should enjoy both while listening to the musicians take it away under flickering candlelight. There’s a $10 food/drink minimum always, and if you decide to go on a Friday or Saturday, there’s an additional $10 cover charge.
