This Fall, $300 Sushi on the Bowery with Sushi Yoshino

Posted on: August 29th, 2019 at 5:08 am by

Over At 342 Bowery, faux fur fashions morph into raw fish haven.

Indeed, the so-called House of Fluff boutique is gone. Replaced by something even more elevated. Sushi Yoshino is on the way.

First announced last fall, the Japanese import is by the hand of 49-year-old Tadashi Yoshida — an award-winning chef with 30 years of experience and a restaurant of his own in Nagoya, Japan. The Bowery location should open in November.

And because we live in the era of peak Bowery 2.0, the Omakase menu is a $300 investment.

Honestly, though, the block hasn’t been the same since the Downtown Music Gallery relocated to Monroe Street in 2009 after eighteen years at 342 Bowery.
