Maki Kosaka in Flatiron is the casual offshoot of fancy omakase spot called Kosaka on West 13th, which means you can rightfully expect the quality of the fish to be excellent without spending your savings on tuna.
If you’re comfortable spending $50 on excellent fish for dinner or lunch, get the makimono set. It arrives on one platter with two pieces of toro and scallop onigiri, four large futomaki pieces full of pickled and fresh vegetables, and what Maki Kosaka calls “grab sushi” - three pieces of beautifully-constructed nigiri that you scoop up with fresh, crisp Saga nori sheets from Kyushu, Japan. In case you’d like to supplement your sushi grabbing (or split something with a dining teammate), Maki Kosaka also offers maki roll combo options for under $30, and you can design your own “grab sushi” set.
Maki Kosaka is right around the corner from The Container Store on 6th Avenue and 19th Street. And like America’s foremost Organization Consortium, their perfectly-plated makimono sushi sets will remind you that an orderly, minimalist aesthetic is extremely pleasing to your brain. You can stop by for indoor or outdoor dining for lunch or dinner any day except Monday.
