Presiding over an eight-seat counter inside David Bouley’s restaurant Brushstroke, Eiji Ichimura serves his ultratraditional sushi with a minimum of ornamentation. Spoonfuls of uni are presented atop pats of rice, without the usual seaweed cone. Pearly, wet slices of tuna belly and goldeneye snapper are laid out one by one, with the friendly but firm instruction to “not use too much soy sauce, please.” At $180, this isn’t the best bargain in town, but until we can gain entrance to Jiro apprentice Daisuke Nakazawa’s new place, this is as close to the real Jiro Dreams of Sushi experience as New Yorkers are likely to get.
