Here are our top picks for snobby Japanese food lovers with a discerning taste for DELICIOUS Japanese food in New York City.


Hasaki has been around since 1984, yet it doesn’t really scream ‘tourist-spot’ which is why we love it. On the menu, there are some traditional Japanese offerings. Try the Afternoon Platter – it’s the best!

Soba-ya has been around for a long time with a loyal following of Soba-noodle lovers. We love the handmade noodles and crispy tempura. For extra value, definitely visit during lunch for their awesome lunch set meals.

It’s not often that you find a restaurant in New York City open 7 days a week, which is one of the reasons we love Soba-Koh. Also Soba-orientated, this spot is a little more home-y for those that want a nice, cheaper meal in NYC. The menu is always changing, so we’re always excited to revisit.
