Wabi Sabi is a seriously good Japanese restaurant that, at first glance, might just look like a casual grab-and-go option. But you should not just grab and go. You should sit and stay inside the relaxing little Upper East Side shop and get one of Wabi Sabi’s bowls, which you can customize with a base of sushi rice, cha-soba noodles, or greens and top with very good tuna or salmon. There are daily specials too, which include things like wagyu, uni, and toro.
