Sushi Masuda is a legendary, world-famous, Michelin-starred sushi restaurant in Minato, Tokyo specializing in traditional, Edo-style sushi.
There’s something special about a restaurant that world-class chefs themselves go to. Talk about a huge hat tip.
You know those are going to be fantastic places to try. If you jump down toward the bottom of this article, you’ll see I quoted from an article on GQ. Daisuke Nakazawa is an acclaimed chef at an immensely famous sushi restaurant in New York — Sushi Nakazawa.
He flies all the way to Tokyo to eat at Sushi Masuda.
+Expect to spend about ¥25,000 per person here; luckily, credit cards are accepted. No parking, take the train – or find paid parking (Tabelog).
+“While Daisuke Nakazawa, the acclaimed chef of Sushi Nakazawa (also known as one of the only New York Times four-star restaurants, and one of the most difficult reservations in Manhattan) does enjoy dining out in New York, none of the city’s restaurants will ever hold a candle to the sushi bars of Tokyo.” — GQ
+“Chef Masuda is one of Jiro Ono’s disciples (from the documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi). Sushi Masuda was granted 2 Michelin Stars for 2017. A SUPER friendly, super talkative chef that very much enjoys chatting up his patrons. He speaks decent English, and surprisingly, knows all the popular chefs in New York.” Sushi Girl
