15 East has been on my list of restaurants to try for awhile now and I got to check it off after we had lunch there recently. The name of this restaurant which is a favorite among sushi lovers happens to be it's address. We chose to sit in the main dining room where the decor is elegantly low key yet comfortable. The atmosphere was also quite calm in there despite it being half-filled which was quite pleasant. My husband and I shared the Grilled Gindara - koi sake marinated black cod with uni sauce for our appetizer and the delicate mingling of flavors in the dish were excellent. We both had the Sushi Omakase which consisted of the chef's choice of seven pieces and a half roll. Both the quality and freshness of the fish were first rate. The service was also top notch. All this comes at a price as this is a Michelin star establishment. Our bill topped $100 and we were drinking club soda not alcohol. That said, we did leave there with happy bellies.
