Check out Haute Living’s picks for the best sushi in the Hamptons.
1 Nobu at the Beach
Nobu, the famous New York sushi eatery, made its Hamptons debut last summer. Located at the newly renovated Capri, Nobu at the Beach offers an indoor/outdoor dining room in the former Pink Elephant space. With ingredients handpicked by Nobu chefs, the restaurant boasts dishes created especially for the new beach location. Be sure to try the exclusive specialty dishes at this new Hampton’s haute spot.
This trendy Japanese restaurant has been a mainstay in Sag Harbor since 1994. Serving slightly modernized dishes, Sen offers an extensive Sake menu and some inventive sushi rolls, such as the Torched Salmon Roll. Inside, amber lighting and rock-encrusted walls provide ambiance for the horseshoe-shaped sushi bar in the center of the restaurant. During the summer months, sushi lovers can even enjoy their food on the patio with a view of downtown Sag Harbor.
3 Show Win
There’s no need to ponder over the extensive menu at Show Win trying to decide which sushi to sample. Turn to the “customer favorites” section and choose from rolls created by previous customers, such as the Sponge Bob Roll or Ted’s Roll. Maybe your favorite sushi roll will even become a menu staple.
4 Suki Zuki
Suki Zuki is often crowded, but always worth the wait. Cookbook and literary author Katie Lee frequents the restaurant once a week, always ordering a customer favorite: the tuna sandwich. Suki Zuki’s version of a spicy tuna roll, the tuna sandwich features layers of fish, tobiko, scallion and tempura between two layers of rice. It’s even cut into triangles like your favorite lunchtime sandwich.
5 Sushi 1
Can’t find something on the menu to try at Sushi 1? Just ask the sushi chefs to whip up your own creation. Or try one of the signature dishes, such as the Sushi 1 roll with spicy tuna, Maryland crab, avocado, and tempura flakes with a special seaweed wrapping. After you’ve stuffed yourself with sushi, make room for the banana tempura dessert, a mouth-watering customer favorite.
