This post is long overdue for two reasons: First, a few months ago, a friend from college (who my friend called TCW, so I shall refer to her here as such) gave me a great tip on a great place to do happy hour in the city. Second, I have been there twice since TCW gave me the tip, and I am only now getting around to writing it up. How sad is that?
Have you been to Nooshi yet? You know what they serve at Nooshi? Sushi! Say it, it’s fun . Nooshi Sushi is conveniently located just south of Dupont and they serve some very decent Sushi. But that is not the selling point. The selling point is the happy hour special. ALL drinks are half off. That’s right, everything on the menu. Beer, wine, mixed drinks, it’s all half off. You can get a large bottle of hot sake for $4. How cool is that? From 3-7 on Monday through Saturday, all their drinks are half price. Even though they have no food specials, it is a great place to meet for drinks and a light bite.
It was not crowded either time I was there (though now that everyone is reading this, I guess I have screwed the pooch on that one). I tried a few of the rolls each time and was quite impressed with them. To be fair, it is certainly no Sticky Rice, or Sake Club, but for the price it cannot be beat.
Have you been there? What were your experiences like? Tell us about it in the comments! (hey, some of you who went there with me read this blog, so I better see your comments). Thanks again to TCW for the tip!
