Cuisine:Japanese. Price: $$. Location: .

This Upper West Side Japanese restaurant is a neighborhood no-brainer when it comes to reasonably priced, good quality sushi. The wait can be long for dinner, so take our advice and go right around noon – you’ll be seated quickly and will also score a great deal by ordering off the lunch menu. Portions are large, which is unusual for Japanese restaurants. On a sunny summers day, take a walk in Central Park and head over to Tenzan to grab a spot on the large patio, where you can people watch as you enjoy your meal.
