At $100 per person, the chef's tasting menu at Sushi Nanese may be a bit pricey; however, you'd be hard pressed to find a diner who didn't find the experience well worth the splurge.
Known as the omakase dinner, this smorgasbord of a Japanese meal epitomizes the way master sushi chef Yoshimichi Takeda (formerly a chef at Nobu in New York City) plays by his own rules. Guests are subject to his whims during the four-course meal, which includes four tastings that may include dishes such as sashimi fuke, scallops and black truffle oil, or mushroom and pepper salad. They're paired with sushi, a full seafood entree, and something for dessert, possibly fresh pear sorbet tinged with ginger.
Loyal fans of this White Plains establishment say you're in good hands with Chef Takeda. Just make sure you call ahead for a reservation, since you won't be seated without one, even if seats are available. And never ask for a box to store your leftovers: Chef Takeda's creations are meant to be enjoyed fresh and in-house.
