in East Village & Lower East Side

Providing no-fuss sushi with fresh daily specials in the heart of the East Village, Kanoyama is a local favorite that has so far been overlooked by the city's big-name food critics (that might explain its unpretentious air). You can order sushi à la carte or in rolls, or choose from the many tempura plates.

An 18-piece omekase (chef's tasting menu) is also available for $135 (reservations recommended).
