Jewel Bako, East Village

239 E. Fifth Street
East Village
New York City , New York
Tel: 212 979 1012's insider take:

Gorgeous sushi, superb sake, and impeccable service keep drawing diners to this pricey-but-worth-it bamboo-lined tunnel. It's owned by entrepreneurial cute couple Jack and Grace Lamb, whose rapidly expanding East Village empire also includes Degustation Wine & Tasting Bar (239 E. Fifth St.) and Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar (101 Second Ave.). If you can score a seat at the sushi bar, you're golden. (Reservations for all three: 212-979-1012.)
