Sushi Miyagi Restaurant

Don't be fooled by appearances: Sushi Miyagi, though nondescript from the outside, hosts an amazing, authentically Japanese restaurant inside. Miyagi, the sushi chef and owner, has honed his craft over 30 years and serves up both traditional Japanese dishes like stellar agedashi tofu as well as more American treats like giant hand rolls in the Chinatown location. The sashimi here is similarly wonderful, with fresh fish flown in twice a week. And lunch specials - which extend even to Saturday - are a great time to get your Japanese fix without blowing the bank.
