Fu SushiAlthough I sing the praises of Takahachi, Fu Sushi is another great sushi spot in the East Village. It’s normally not packed to the gills, the staff are friendly & they serve up great food. I’ve been there a bunch of times, so basically here’s a rundown of what’s on offer.

Spicy Tuna Tortilla Chip @ Fu SushiWhen they first opened, they didn’t have a liquor license & it was BYOB, luckily, they have one now & serve beer & sake.  In the times I’ve been recently, the owner, Mr. Fu hasn’t been there, but the service & the quality of the food hasn’t changed a bit.  Meals at Fu Sushi usually begin with an Amuse Bouche, spicy tuna on a tortilla chip. A bit of an odd combination, but in the end, the flavors actually work & the tortilla chip gives a really great crunch.

Sushi @ Fu SushiThere’s a wide variety of fish available (as you’d expect from any sushi restaurant worth it’s salt), but my favorites are, by far, Grilled Eel (Unagi) & Sea Urchin (Uni).  Not everyone likes the texture of Uni, but I can’t get enough of the stuff!  As I said before, the sushi is fresh & the service is attentive & friendly (not overbearing).  They have a few adventurous special rolls, but unfortunately there aren’t any descriptions on their website, so you’ll have to eat in to find out what are in the rolls.
