Sasabune Express is the casual version of a popular omakase place from LA (with an NYC location on 73rd street as well). The quality of the fish here tastes noticeably fresher than what you’ll find at most neighborhood sushi spots you frequent on Wednesday nights. If you’re in the mood to eat incredible scallop and snow crab rolls, but you want to pay under $50 for decadent sushi, Sasabune Express is the best cheat code we could recommend to you.
