Really Good Sushi Followed By A Bar With Ouija Board Tables In Tribeca
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
In an era where mediocre lunchbox sushi is available almost everywhere (have you been to Duane Reade lately?), it’s hard to know when a given sushi spot is just a meal—or, when it’s an experience to be savored. While The New Yorker noted that Tetsu leaves something to be desired in a few ways, it lauded the sushi there as impeccable, and great sushi is something we can stand behind. Check out this spot and skip the entrees in favor of fresh fluke, mackerel, yellowtail and more. Fun fact: Tetsu is an offshoot of NYC high-end Masa chain of sushi restaurants, which includes Masa, Bar Masa and Kappo Masa.
After you’ve gotten your sushi fill, make your way to The Wooly Public for an after-dinner drink. Housed in the historic Woolworth Building, tables are decked out in Ouija boards (don’t worry, we promise there’s nothing evil about this place) and cocktails come served in elephant-themed drink-ware. In addition to the ultra-modern elephant-themed decor, you’ll love sampling twists on classic drinks like the Terry’s Old Fashioned, featuring a subtle hint of chocolate in the otherwise traditional beverage. If the night goes late and you find yourselves craving a snack, The Wooly Public has you covered with small plates like stuffed olives and deviled eggs.
