Sushi Noz

Recommended Posts

If all the talk of decline at Aska is true, then I think Sushi Noz may be the best restaurant in New York right now.  If sushi in Japan is much better than this, I shudder to even imagine how great it must be.

 

Of course, the clientele is odious.

I’m sure it’s great, but it looks like Kuruma prices and up (Masa, pfui).

 

Almost impossible to afford unless you’re odious.

Whoa! You’re calling our son-in-law, the sushi maven (and crossword puzzle genius) “odious”?! He loved Noz. (He and our daughter honeymooned in Japan.)

Trust me, he wasn’t there last night.

So, are you saying that the usual Noz clientele is o.k.? If so, what made this particular group different/odious?

No, I'm saying that I'd wager a lot that your son-in-law is as atypical a guest there as I and my dining companion were.

 

These people were very evidently ignorant of food and beverage, limited in what they'd accept, and mainly concerned with making sure that everything was expensive enough (which was most of what they talked about).   To be clear, they were all a good deal younger than me.  (Which isn't hard.)

 

I've heard scuttlebutt suggesting that's the usual crowd here, but it's secondhand and not for repetition.  (Unlike at the unsurprisingly closed White Gold Butchers and Insieme, the staff here has the grace not to disparage their customers in the open dining room.)

That sounds unfortunate and sort of out of character with what I've seen at other $$$ sushi spots.

Based on your description, you would definitely win your bet.

Sounds like many (otherwise) excellent places in San Francisco.     LOTS  of money, not much experience.

Good point. Although for me having too many of the "sushi maven" types around can be (not quite as) annoying. Your description sounds like the scene in Billions.

I couldn't agree more!
