Why Did You Eat That: Bond, BondST

By |November 1st, 2010|New York, Why Did You Eat That?|

While in NY last week, I took my boo to a New York City institution. I figured he needed to really see the city and have some pretty delicious sushi in the meantime… so, off to BondSt we went. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, you may miss the front door. Tucked in a townhouse on… you guessed it, Bond Street, you enter the main dining room via the stairs or the lounge below by taking a few steps down.

Upon entering, the room is abuzz with attractive couples and groups of suits. The staff is startlingly attractive and the ambiance is magical. If dining upstairs, you’ll be whisked to the elevator and seated in yet another beautiful room. While I’ve eaten just about everything on the menu, a few star players are the Wagyu Tataki, Tuna Crispy Rice, Broiled Chilean Sea Bass, and the Banana Milk Chocolate Dim Sum for dessert. You’re welcome. I’ve ordered for you.

Why Did You Eat That: Best Sushi ^3

Forget Nobu, forget Bond St. I have found the best sushi in the city.

I  heard about this place a couple of years ago, back when I was way too cool to venture down to the LES (Lower East Side), but last weekend, I made the trip and let me tell you, totally worth the cab fare.

I’m talking about Cube63.  Yes, this is probably old news to some of you, but for those of you who have yet to step out of their trendy comfort zone, I suggest you try it.  It is tiny and unassuming and most people couldn’t figure out how to open the door.  You must make a reservation and they take their reservations very seriously.  Stroll in fifteen minutes late and they probably gave your table away.  I have no idea what we actually did order, I let the man of the table take care of that, but everything I put in my mouth was absolutely delicious.  Typically, I like to know what I’m eating, but I didn’t care.  It was that good.

*Added bonus- it’s BYOB!  Gotta love that 🙂
