Sushi Masters Explain the Art of Omakase | Food Skills

  • Published on Feb 12, 2018
  • In Japanese cuisine, the concept of "omakase" leaves the choices entirely up to the chef. At Shuko, one of the premiere sushi restaurants in NYC, the menu is driven by the imaginations of Nick Kim and Jimmy Lau, as well as the whims of Mother Nature. Hyper-fresh cuts of bluefin tuna, squid, barracuda, and needlefish travel from the chefs' hands directly to the diners' plates. The result is a meal that flows seamlessly from one course to the next. One of Manhattan's most traditional omakase experiences, as well as one of its most boundary-pushing, Shuko is a bucket-list destination for sushi obsessives worldwide.

    dude is fish and rice. go to a peruvean restaurant, they do the same thing and charge you 1/10th. this is 99% show 1%food.
    food centered about theatrics, it reminds me of some nonsense parisian restaurants with super tiny portions of pretentious cuisine.
    dont get me wrong im sure this taste delicious but the price is just not justified

    Pretentious Omakase chefs!!
    Not because they are not Japanese (but a Chinese and Korean dudes). It is the way they treat their food - no Japanese chef would blow the charcoal that way.
    They copied some looks of Omakase but missed its soul.
    Imitation failed!

    Sir that's not needlefish, that's typically known as Ballyhoo and it is ABSOLUTELY NOT fit for consumption by anyone who's paying that much to experience your establishment. I'm appalled.

    Omakase(お任せ) just means to leave the decision to (the chef). It has NOTHING to do with seasonality.

  • Southern FL Fishing

    Ballyhoo as an entree? I've used them for bait as years, never consider to try as table fare. I think i would rather eat the snapper than the ballyhoo.

    Here's a question for the sushi masters.
    Lately at sushi restaurants, I have noticed they are serving sushi rolls stuffed with minced fish.
    I'm paying for sushi, and I want a piece of sushi grade fish, not left over scraps that are minced and reused to put in my roll and call it sushi.......
    Please reply, and let me know your thoughts!
