Similar to outlets in your bedroom, everyone should be aware of their closest great neighborhood sushi spot. And, in the case of anyone who lives near 125th Street in Central Harlem, that sushi spot should be Yuzu. The rolls and pieces here are all moderately priced (most are under $10), and there are a few different sake options that you can make a flight out of. Yuzu is casual and relaxed enough for everyone from a date to a family with several middle-school aged children, and the bar works well if you want to just stop by for a solo meal.
