Tamaya Sushi & Grill Restaurant Review

: Tamaya is popular with the midtown crowd for its modern décor and upscale bar and lounge, but it manages to retain its casual, comfortable vibe. The extensive menu features both traditional and imaginative sushi choices, as well as dozens of unusual appetizers and the requisite tempura, udon and bento boxes. Sushi is clearly the main draw: there is a wide selection of nigiri, hand rolls and specialty rolls, and an entire sub-menu of spicy rolls. Wash it all down with a Japanese beer, saké, plum wine or traditional shooter --- complete with hot sauce, tobiko and quail egg.
