Sushi Spots in Lincoln Square

Who doesn't love good sushi? If you're craving some sashimi or rolls, Lincoln Square has a handful of spots to enjoy. 

Chef Masa Takayama's  established and high-end Japanese restaurant  Masa on the fourth floor of  The Shops at Columbus Circle , offers  a fixed-price sushi menu of $595 per person, not including beverages and tax. The experience is intimate and an exercise in visual and flavorful satisfaction. This modern and elegant spot requires reservations, with more details available here . At the same location,  Bar Masa ,  offers an exceptional menu of sushi and sashimi a la carte in a  refined, modern setting at more affordable prices.  Click here to see a sample menu   of Chef Masa's fresh, experimental approach to authentic Japanese cuisine.

Also in The Shops at Columbus Circle in the lower concourse, Whole Foods Market has a Japanese style sushi counter, called Genji, where patrons can sit and enjoy fresh Japanese cuisine for lunch or grab pre-made sushi plates to go made daily. The service is fast enough for a weekday lunch break if you work or live in the neighborhood. You can view a sample menu here before you stop in to taste for yourself. 

Further up Broadway at 49 West 64th Street, Atlantic Grill is a wonderful seafood eatery offering delicious raw bar, plate, and sushi options in a sophisticated and stylish atmosphere. The menu lists some unique sushi roll options and classic sushi and sashimi pieces.  You can make a lunch or dinner reservation here

You can also grab quick and easy to-go containers of lunchtime sushi at Melissa's Gourmet if you're in a pinch for time. The deli and sandwich market at 1875 Broadway offers a few standard sushi options that won't set you back an entire meal's worth of time if you want a bit of sushi mid-day. 

Sushi can be a wonderful treat and these eateries will unite you with some delicious options. But, if sushi and sashimi aren't your style, you can refer to our "Where to Eat in Lincoln Square" dining guide for more neighborhood eatery options or click here to view our online dining directory.

Two New Exhibits Set to Open at the American Folk Art Museum
Untitled, Eugen Gabritschevsky (1893-1979)

On Wednesday, March 14, two new exhibits,  Eugen Gabritschevsky: Theater of the Imperceptible and  Carlo Zinelli (1916-1974) will go on view at the  American Folk Art Museum. Both exhibits will be on display until Sunday, August 20. 

Eugen Gabritschevsky: Theater of the Imperceptible features the work of the Russian-born artist  Eugen Gabritschevsky whose  successful career in science was cut short by the deterioration of his mental health, leading to his admission into a psychiatric hospital in Germany in 1931. This first in-depth exhibition of Gabritschevsky's relatively unknown artistic contribution is composed of more than eighty artworks, a film, publications, and archival documents.

Untitled, Carlo Zinelli (1916-1974)
Carlo Zinelli (1916-1974) is the first museum exhibition of the r evered Italian artist in the United States.  The show highlights four distinct phases in Zinelli's oeuvre and new scholarship, through a selection of fifty-five paintings (many displayed double-sided), audio recordings, a film, and images by  Life  magazine photographer John Phillips.

The American Folk Art Museum is located at 2 Lincoln Square, on Columbus Avenue between 65th and 66th Streets. Admission is free. See all of the museum's upcoming events at
