Sushi Kaito is a 15-seat omakase-style sushi restaurant on the Upper West Side. There are three seatings per night, and you have the option of a 12-piece omakase for $75 or 16-piece omakase for $100. Every meal also finishes with a miso soup, a handroll, and a slice of fresh made tamago. It’s one of the best sushi experiences you can get in this town for the money, and that’s a pretty good reason to head for west 72nd Street sometime soon.
