We finally got around to trying this place recently and were very pleasantly surprised! There was a wait to eat outside, which we didn't mind, so we had a drink at the bar from a friendly and capable bartender. Their drinks are creative and tasty, if a bit strong. (Simply a warning--but at least you're not getting cheated, right?)\r
Simply put, our food was very good. My boyfriend hates sushi, which is my favorite, so it's often a challenge finding a place that has both good, fresh, and creative sushi, but still has ample (and quality) other choices--not a problem here! The Indian pancake app was amazing, my roll (Red Hot Dragon) was fresh, and he enjoyed his Thai style chicken dish (can't remember exact name!)\r
The service was also above average--very polite and prompt, if not the most informed (I was in the mood to try something new and asked what other sashimi he recommended--he was at a loss.) The food and drinks were creative and delicious, and the atmosphere inside definitely adds to the experience. We'll without a doubt be back and often!
Pros: selection, service, drinks
Cons: not many-- a little crowded (where isn't in Manhattan?), might be hard for large groups
