Sushi Lunch Sets at Morimoto

A raw meal that is no raw deal

Sushi Nakazawa grabbed all of the food headlines this week by landing a four-star review in The New York Times, making it the only sushi restaurant in town with such acclaim. But the accolades will cost you: only a $120 or $150 prix-fixe menu is offered at the new West Villager.

For those days when your budget is more bust than boom, Chelsea‘s Morimoto offers one of the best lunch deals around with its sushi sets. The sushi combo ($25) is a particular bargain, a serving of five pieces of quality nigiri, one maki roll, miso soup, a sesame mixed green salad and seasonal pickles. The $45 chef’s combo — with eight pieces and one maki roll (pictured) — also offers value with its generosity: You’ll still have some cash left over for holiday shopping afterwards.

The restaurant was opened in 2006 by the famous Philadelphia-based Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto and talented young executive chef Erik Battes joined the team in 2013, fresh from the kitchen at Jean-Georges. Morimoto himself recently revamped Tribeca Canvas into Bisutoro in October.
