Delicious, fresh fishes in midtown. Ideally for lunch. On the expensive side but there is a fairly linear function between the price and quality of raw fishes.

When you walk in here, there's an old NYT review that says this place once got 4 NYT *'s???? I think the dude who opened Sushi Yasuda came out of here. It's good for high quality, no nonsense sushi that even if you're used to Kuruma you can say to yourself, "well . . . I ate pretty well and didn't drop all that $$$$."

I quite enjoy this restaurant. I have dined at tons of sushi places, from the cheap places in the lower east side to the most expensive in the city. This is somewhere in between. This is Manhattan, everything is expensive, but I have always had good, fresh sushi, esp when I ask the chef for recommendations. You can easily go to places that are several hundred dollars a person, even for lunch. This is a good, reasonably priced place, and very convenient. Seamless is always good from here too.

To clarify my review - Food is rated 5 because it is not like the food is inedible. In fact, their tempura was fabulous. But overall, their sushi could have been from any cookie cutter chinese-owned sushi place in NYC and after charging those kinds of prices, that is simply unacceptable. Value is at 1 only because they don't have an option for negative 10.

Excuse Me NY Mag? Why is this a critic's pick?

This place got 4 stars from the NYTimes.... in 1983. Is 1983 relevant to 2008? Well, my Dad thought so when he based his decision to bring visiting foodies from abroad to show them "good NYC sushi" at, no, not Yasuda or the myriad of other great NYC sushi places, but at Hatsuhana. As someone who loves and treasures the NYC culinary scene (I feel like a proud father when talking about NYC food), imagine my shame and embarrassment when service for our private party included a 40 minute interval between ordering and service, an hour before anything from the sushi bar was served, fish that was shockingly pedestrian, and a bill that surpassed 1000dollars for a party of 9. After instilling expectations in our visiting guests that Hatsuhana would be a representation of top shelf NYC sushi, and the three hour debacle that was our criminally overpriced meal, I felt like I had just watched my son royally F-up his piano recital, make the game losing error in his little league game, and come home with straight F's on his report card all at the same time. One word sums up this place for me: Tragic.
