Cube 63 is a extremely small restaurant that serves Asian inspires entrees and fresh sushi. Their entrees and sushi are not all that appealing, but their rolls are quite good. What make Cube 63 extremely popular is that they offer BYOB without corkage free, it’s hard to find a quality japanese restaurant that allow BYOB in the city. They have two locations, one in Manhattan and the other in Brooklyn (not BYOB). I had dinner at their Manhattan branch and the experience was not the best. Their food was satisfactory, but the way they run their business was not. Their restaurant is small to begin with, but they insist on cram more people than they can properly seat, which made dinner very uncomfortable. I came with a party of four and we were laterality sitting on top of each other. I don’t recommend eating at Cube 63 in the city unless you like to be limited to the amount of body moment you can make during dinner. In addition, I don’t think dinner at Cube 63 is worth it if they don’t allow BYOB, so their Brooklyn branch of out of the question. If you go against my recommendation and decide to dine at Cube 63, reservation and confirmation of reservation on day of dinning is a must.

Sushi of Gari 46 is Chief Gari’s third sushi restaurant in New York City, his other two are located uptown on 78th St. bet 1st and York Ave (headquarters) and Columbus Ave bet 77th and 78th St. Sushi of Gari is not a traditional Japanese sushi house, they pair fresh fish in a very creative way. I recommend the omakase ($100 – depending on how many rounds), where Executive Sushi Chef Aoki delivers the freshest fish with a truly unique combination of condiments and ingredients (stewed tomatoes, sauces, chopped truffles). They also have cheaper options such as sushi and sashimi patters that range from $25-48 depending on quantity. The fish here is incredibly fresh and just melted in your mouth. I would also suggest sitting at the bar, if possible. I’ve been here twice and you don’t get the same felling from siting at a table.

$10-13USD gets you stuffed. Decent Sushi at a great value.

This place offers platters that come at a good value. The platter I had was very basic (shrimp, salmon, egg, fluke, etc.). Not comparable to high-end sushi, but it’s definitely one of the better takeout places for raw fish.
