Sushi of Gari is pretty famous on the Upper East Side. Unfortunately, since I had a burger about 2 hours before I only ordered a la carte. But nevertheless, it was delicious. And I did order one special off-menu piece from the omakase, salmon with roasted tomato. Whoa. The Black Seaweed salad was also bomb.
I wasnt super impressed by the salads at Inoteca in the lower east side but I did enjoy the truffled egg toast. It consisted of a thick slice of brioche with a truffled egg (probably an egg stored in a container with a truffle overnight) and fontina baked on top served over sautéed asparagus. It also comes with bottarga. I opted for the original.
