Sushi Azabu
428 Greenwich St.
(bet. Vestry and Laight)
More fancy than casual

Underneath Azabu (formerly Daruma-Ya) is a separate-but-related sushi restaurant, Sushi Azabu. It’s exclusive—just three booths and a small sushi bar—and can be expensive. But the setting is serene (note the bamboo ceiling and pebbled floor), and sushi lovers prize the esoteric fish. For a bit of Japanese authenticity, check out the toilet.
