Affordable, authentic New York sushi: Sounkyo Sushi & Hatsuhana

New York City is famous for “trendy” sushi places like Megu, Nobu, and Bond Street. While these are authnetic New York experiences for the rich and famous, less flashy sushi places may provide more affordable and authentic travel experiences.

Sounkyo Sushi is inexpensive and popular with New York City 20-somethings. Sounkyo has pretty good (not great) Sushi and two popular specials: an all-you-can-eat deal and an all-you-can-drink deal that includes Sapporo, Kirin, sake, and wine. The all-you-can-drink special is around $12.00/person making it a good deal for most social drinkers.

Hatsuhana is more expensive than Sounkyo Sushi but you can get a full meal for around $20.00. The sushi is better than at Sounkyo, meaning that at Hatsuhana you can get excellent sushi without the flash of Megu, Nobu, and Bond Street. You’ll also be eating at one of the first and most enduring sushi restaurants in New York City. Check out the sushi bar downstairs. Hatsuhana serves more business people than Sounkyo so it’s a very different scene.
