What does a young Jewish guy from Boca Raton know about sushi? Apparently a whole lot. (Also $20 says every article about this guy starts with that sentence). David Boudhana trained in Japan and worked at Morimoto and Sushi Dojo before striking out on his own. He popularized the concept of a 30 minute omakase at Sushi on Jones before leaving to open Sushi by Bou. At both locations of his restaurant he offers an affordable12-piece, $50 omakase in under 30 minutes. The spaces are small (just 4 seats in Gansevoort market and 7 in midtown) and intimate. The chef chooses the menu which includes toro, uni, scallop, unagi, and wagu. The experience is unique and quick; definitely a nice way to treat yourself.
