Raku is one of the best restaurants we have EVER experienced, in the world! Please tell me where we can have a similar experience in New York City.
Wish I new...
It's difficult because I feel exactly the same way about Raku! However, my favorite is Blue Ribbon Sushi 119 Sullivan Street. They do not take reservations and are always busy even very late into the evening but the experience and the food is well worth the wait. I always go a couple times when I am in NYC because it is really wonderful. Just go and give your names and cell number and they will call you when your table is ready. There is a cute neighborhood bar on the corner of Sullivan and Spring where you can have a drink while you are waiting. The owner is very friendly and used to people doing this too. I am sure you will truly enjoy your experience here. Trust the waiters and go for their daily specials. That's how I discovered one of my favorite dishes... ankimo, monkfish liver.
I agree it is one of the bests!!!
