Jin with no tonic

Jin
252 Broome Street
New York, NY

212 979 0989

Jin is located around the corner from a supplier to Sushi restaurants and as expected had some of the freshest Sushi and Sashimi I have tasted. Jin is also located on the site of an old bar, the type of place most people would call a “Dive”.

The most universally accepted feature of a Dive is dark lighting and its unseemliness. The windows of Jin need a cleaning. I almost walked out when I was given a greasy, dirty, almost unreadable menu.

The focus of Jin is on its Sushi bar and it is delightful. The chef is fast, efficient and knowledgeable. I am sorry to say that is not the case for the wait staff, who’s English is minimal.

I ordered smokes eel in my dinner sized bento box ($ 18.95) and I received a single beautiful large piece of eel, but no knife to cut it. I asked for a knife, but none came. Japanese food traditional comes with green tea, but ours was missing. We both asked for tea, but the waiter delivered only one.

The fish is great, but there are other Japanese restaurants
