JapaneseSasabune is a new Sushi restaurant up on the Upper East side.  Sasabunes origins are from Los Angeles then to Honolulu and now New York City.

This is an omikase only experience.  The chef just starts having people bring it out.  We went from a plate of sushimi to lots of sushi with warm rice and just simple fish.  Really delicious.  Nothing out of the ordinary. 

Good service, very attentive.  The place is as basic as you can be.  No ambiance.  It is all about the sushi. 

For us, we had to get our passports out to make the big journey but if I lived up there, I’d go more often.  Yasuda is still my favorite but I wouldn’t pass up a night at Sushi Sasabune.
