Kouzan Restaurant Review

: A comfortable yet elegant atmosphere, a welcoming vibe, reasonable prices, and high quality sushi put this Upper West Side eatery leaps above the competition. Aside from a few house specialties among the rolls and hot appetizers, the menu offers little departure from the classics. Start with the rainbow roll, a generous blend of four types of fish with creamy avocado topped with tobiko, and the grilled Japanese eggplant, flavored with sweet soy sauce. In terms of entrées, deciding between the miso black cod or Chilean sea bass might be the hardest decision you will have to make---so why not go for both? Wash it all down with one of the creative cocktails on offer---the house mojito, accented by a splash of saké, is a favorite.
