Munchies Explores the Best Omakase in the West Village at Nakazawa

Sushi Nakazawa is a small sushi restaurant that has been open for almost two years in the West Village. Despite being a relative newcomer on the New-York-sushi-block, Sushi Nakazawa has the distinction of being one of only 6 restaurants that Pete Wells and the New York Times food reviewers have given 4-stars to, the highest possible rating.

In this video from Vice's excellent Munchies series, learn all about the restaurant's approach to sushi from Master Chef Daisuke Nakasawa.

Daisuke Nakazawa is the co-owner and sushi chef at Nakazawa in Greenwich Village, New York, one of the city’s most renowned destinations for omakase. He serves a style of sushi inspired by his adopted hometown, taking the skills he learned during his his 11-year-apprenticeship at Sukibayashi Jiro - of Jiro Dreams of Sushi fame - and applying them to ingredients and flavor profiles that would ruffle feathers at home in Tokyo. Always rigorous, but never a purist, Nakazawa’s drive to become number one is helped by his refusal to be bound by dogma.
