Ashino’s covert location within the well-trodden food haunt that is Chijmes is the first indication that it isn’t one of those run-of-the-mill restaurants that populate the dining destination. Past the shoji sliding doors is everything from your sushi dreams: it reveals an intimate space anchored by a wooden sushi counter presided over by chef-owner Taku Ashino. A master of jukusei (aged) sushi, chef Ashino aims to serve every piece of raw seafood in its prime. He patiently marinates and ages everything, which improves it in both taste and texture. From two-week-aged tuna to three-day-aged botan ebi, the experience here surprises even the most educated of diners. If you judge a restaurant by who eats there, then Ashino is a top pick—most of his regulars are Japanese expats and in-the-know locals who don’t compromise when it comes to getting their sushi fix.
