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.
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.
