Located on the Upper East Side and in close proximity to Central Park, this neighborhood has a relaxed feel, as if time passes more slowly. Sachi, a Japanese restaurant, seems perfectly suited to these environs. The husband-and-wife owners, the Yamanoshitas, moved to this current location eight years ago after running a restaurant in midtown. The Yamanoshitas pride themselves on never using pre-made ingredients, and the restaurant boasts homemade dashi broth. In addition to fresh sushi and sashimi, original concoctions such as the Sachi Roll ($18) are also hugely popular.
Choose from tuna, salmon or yellowtail. The fresh fish and soft avocado combine exquisitely with the spicy sauce. $14.50.
