Nori is a brand new sushi/sashimi place opened in November 2007 right on 2nd Avenue just south of St. Mark’s. We ate there last night after reading some rave reviews on Yelp, and we were not disappointed. First off, the service was excellent – our waitress Cecilia was very attentive and friendly, explained everything carefully, and another man (I think possibly the owner) also came over to make sure we were having a good meal.

The sushi and sashimi (we ordered the omakase) was impeccable. We were told that they get their fish from the same suppliers as Blue Ribbon and Nobu, and the quality was apparent. Much of it was so good that I didn’t use any soy sauce or seasoning at at all. In addition to the usual standbys, the selection included a wonderful fresh abalone they had just gotten in, as well as a duck sushi (yummy!) and a beef sushi.

All in all, a great dining experience and highly recommended.

PS – They don’t have a liquor license yet, so it’s BYOB. But they were terrific about chilling and serving our sake, and always keeping our glasses full!
