Ladies and gentlemen, New York City now has a four-star sushi restaurant, once again. Today, Pete Wells awards the New York Times' highest rating to Sushi Nakzawa, the tiny new West Village restaurant from former Jiro Ono apprentice Daisuke Nakazawa and restaurateur Alessandro Borgognone. Wells writes:
The moment-to-moment joys of eating one mouthful of sushi after another can merge into a blur of fish bliss. But almost everything Mr. Nakazawa cups in his hands and places in front of you is an event on its own. A piece of his sushi grabs control of your senses, and when it's gone, you wish you could have it again. These little events carve themselves into your memory. So does the meal, 21 pieces or so over about two hours.There are a lot of great omakase restaurants in this city, but Wells notes: "No restaurant in town does as much with sushi, and sushi alone, as Nakazawa."
