Walk into Brushstroke and take a right instead of a left. Very small bar. The food is every bit as good as Kurumazushi, but the decor is nicer and the beverage selection is better.

If you can get past the "B" (guessing this might be kitchen to bathroom proximity issue) and the fact that you'll most likely wait in line, then order a sake, have a chat with your friends and get ready for some great, fairly affordable sushi. Though the tables are squashed together, the atmosphere is boisterous and cozy. I usually take out-of-towners who have a sushi request here for the fish and special dishes(see neon signs posted around the walls of the restaurant).
Life is too short to skip dessert
I'm going out in Soho later tonight and just booked a res here after reading this! I'm a littel freaked by the B rating but it otherwise sounds right up my alley!

If you haven't been to Zuma yet, do yourself a favor and make it the next stop on the New York culinary rollercoaster. Zuma has extremely fresh seafood and they emphasize sustainability. During my meal I took notice to the abscence of fish such as Bluefin Tuna and Swordfish both of which are incredibly over fished. Zuma also does so much more than sushi. They have three seperate kitchens with scores of cooks who are doing everything right so far. The beverage program is extensive and it compliments the various dishes on the menu effortlessly. The Uni is as fresh as it gets and the Tuna Tartare really shines. They are not pretentious about their sushi menu and offer some no rice rolls for those who want to go that route. Zuma's impressive space, extensive menu, and quality of ingredients make it a "must try" for me.
Cheap eats to fine dining and everything in between
I kind of shied away from Zuma because of the midtown location, not somewhere I go very often. But I love the sound of it! I might need to make an exception :)

I love everything about this restaurant, from the decor to the drinks to the menu. You definitely did them justice in your writeup!

Really enjoyed this piece about Zuma, I like to support places that put an emphasis on sustainability.
Very traditional and very expensive, but for old-school sushi the best in NYC. Sit at the bar and omakase, that's all you have to. Wait twittering for the sweet shrimp imported from Japan.
When life gives you limes, just add tequila
Why have I never heard more about this place? Am I living under a rock or something? Look really cool

Great to see these guys get some love. They don't get mentioned often enough.
