Press reviews from a variety of magazines and critics are listed below.
Sushi Dojo included in Top Sushi Restaurants in America. “After a couple questions about your preferences he’ll get to work, and then the ride begins: it varies depending on what’s been freshly flown in from Japan that day, but a sample omakase might include sashimi of amberjack (kanpachi), Arctic char, striped bass, Boston wild bluefin tuna, chopped marinated horse mackerel, octopus that’s so fresh it moves when you poke it, and a large saltwater clam known as pen shell.
“There’s no reason for a 28-year-old white kid of French-Moroccan descent from South Florida to be slicing better umami-rich fish than some of the city’s longtime sushi masters. But that’s exactly what’s happening behind Dojo’s 12-seat bar on a Tuesday through Saturday night basis.”
“Masa, Yasuda, Soto, Hideo, Toshihiro, Suzuki.These are the names of some of the best sushi chefs that have graced NYC. And now we must add one more name: David. That’s right, as in David Bouhadana, the young chef who grew up in Florida, who is at the helm of the just opened East Village sushi joint, Sushi Dojo.
