Profile

GoWasabi aspires to be a go-to neighborhood sushi bar, and it plays the role attractively with a convenient location near the N train and picture windows for people-watching. Although it bills itself as a Japanese and Korean restaurant, the Korean menu is limited to a few dishes. The deal here is sushi, and the best of that is GoWasabi’s “sumo,” or supersized, rolls, which comprise an octet of futomaki-sized pieces. The sumo Soho roll packs everything from spicy tuna to meaty hunks of shrimp tempura. The bandana-topped sushi chefs also do well by their “crunchy” rolls, with the textural interest of tempura bits spliced in with the fish. GoWasabi’s interior is spare but pleasant, with black lacquer tables and pastel-green walls—but a stylish note is struck by a nearly nightly rotation of jazz pianists playing an upright tucked beside the sushi bar.

Prix-fixe Lunch
