Kura

Where: 130 St. Marks Place (between 1st Ave and Ave A)

  • The outside is unmarked, so unless you know where to go, you will not accidentally stumble upon it
  • The atmosphere is quiet, but also laid back at the same time
  • Had the omakase with 18 pieces. Leaned strongly towards fatty tuna and shellfish of both the mollusk and shellfish varieties (scallops, clams, abalone, squid)
  • Not as innovative as Tanoshi or as traditional as Sushi Yasuda — it is somewhere in between. Uses the blowtorch for some of the more fattier fish, which added an extra dimension of flavor
