Sushi Nakazawa

Pinkyfingerup is a blog/site that shares my personal experiences with food and drink. Sharing with you every morsel that lands on my taste buds that I think is worth sharing. It is up to you to go out and explore and find that delightful bite. We are just here to give you leads. After being in a little funk for a few months, I can feel that flavor getting sweeter with time. It’s time to eat and be merry again.
The Pinkyfingerup family got together to celebrate new beginnings and  hopes of having a bright future as a team. We wanted to start the year with an experience that we can remember years down the road. We decided to go with Omakase style. For those that don’t know, Omakase is a term meaning chefs choice.

A little over a year I posted about another Omakase experience. I thought it was time for another sushi excursion. Our destination, Sushi Nakazawa, tucked in a side street in the dashing West Village neighborhood. Daisuke Nakazawa, is the namesake of the restaurant, was a featured chef in the critically acclaimed 2011 documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi. After this two hour experience, you will in no time will be dreaming of fatty tuna and sockeye salmon. Just a heads up, you need to make reservations a month in advance. You do have two choices to make. You can choose to sit in the dining room or pay a little extra to see the chef master his artistry. Whatever choice you make, the experience is going to stimulate your senses. No shame in our game, each melt in your mouth bite of fish was followed by harmonies of mmmmm’s and ahhhhhs. Take this tip, go to Nakazawa, close your eyes and savor every bite. Because this going to be an experience you will remember for a long time.
