Jiro Dreams of Sushi

leave a comment »

Last night I had a Japanese themed night that began with a sushi dinner and ended with a viewing of Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a heartwarming documentary about Jiro Ono, a Michelin award-winning sushi chef.

JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin Guide rating, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.

Although it is unlikely that I will make it to Jiro’s restaurant in the near future (Japan is a little far and out of reach at the moment), I still think it is possible to find excellent sushi in NYC.  Each New Yorker has her own favorite and I am partial to Blue Ribbon Sushi.
