All the fish, half the bill

In the newest New York Zagat surveys, one category of food garnered all the highest ratings: sushi. It’s no longer just a hot trend; now it’s just incredibly delicious. Small wonder, then, that it was also New York’s most expensive restaurant category (NYT reviewer Frank Bruni called a $65 meal a bargain).

sushiloungeWell, the rest of us need our Omega 3 oils, too. At Sushi Lounge (132 St. Mark’s Place, Manhattan–map), you can fill up on fish without sinking your bank account. They offer a half-off special all the time (does that even count as a special?) Just order at least $16 worth of their already low-priced sushi and your bill is magically cut in half. Try the deluxe special (8 different pieces of sushi plus a California roll) for $17.50, a.k.a. $8.75.

Of course this isn’t the best sushi in the city, but it’s fresh and flavorful enough to beat out some of its higher-priced competition. We doubt New York sushi will ever be an “everyday luxury” (sorry, Frank), but at this price it is certainly an affordable treat.
